Information Transfer Meetings

The Gulf of Mexico Region Information Transfer Meeting (ITM) began in 1980 as an annual meeting to foster sharing results, methodologies, and ideas related to environmental studies. Scientists in these meetings present, discuss, and share their findings in support of the Offshore Energy and Minerals Management Program.

To date, during this meeting series, exciting discoveries have been presented, such as chemosynthetic communities, observations and sound of sperm whales in the Gulf, technological advances by the offshore oil and gas industry, and new developments in alternative energy technology, guidance, and regulations.

For information about the most recent ITM, see the ITM 2009 page.

For proceedings from previous ITMs, see the Proceedings page.

Gulf of Mexico Region ITMs are held every two years.
