Abstract:

Through an umbrella program, the Flower Gardens Ocean Research Program (FGORP), scientists and students from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and several other Gulf coast universities have been able to utilize offshore oil/gas production platforms as field stations from which to conduct research and undertake training in scientific diving technology. As a cooperative program with several offshore oils and gas producers, the research and training conducted through FGORP has been effective, productive, and cost efficient.
