Acknowledgments

The GRP would like to acknowledge and thank the numerous individuals who assisted and contributed to its work in 2017 as collaborators, advisors, participants in workshops and consensus studies, and grant and fellowship application reviewers—all of whom acted in a volunteer capacity. Without their efforts the work of the GRP would not be possible.

In addition, we would like to offer a special thanks to six departing GRP Advisory Board members whose terms ended in 2017: Porfirio Álvarez-Torres, Kim Anderson, Elliot Atlas, J. Ford Brett, Sara Graves, and Anthony Knap. These members played an integral role in guiding the GRP.

Thank you to this entire community of amazing people for their time, service, and dedication working for the benefit of communities and ecosystems in the Gulf and beyond.

Each year, the Gulf Research Program (GRP) produces an annual report to summarize how funds were used. These reports review accomplishments, highlight activities, and, over time, will assess metrics to determine how the program is progressing in accomplishing its goals. The 2017 annual report is the fourth report in this series.

The GRP is an independent, science-based program founded in 2013. Through grants, fellowships, and other activities, it seeks to enhance oil system safety and the protection of human health and the environment in the Gulf of Mexico region and other areas along the U.S. outer continental shelf with offshore oil and gas operations.

This report captures key developments and successes in 2017. The GRP continues to build on its past work and seeks to learn, think about, and plan for how and where it can have the greatest cumulative and lasting impacts.
