Marine Policy & Law


This program studies how marine policies and laws impact humans as well as understanding how human behavior affects coastal and ocean ecosystems. Special emphasis is placed on examining the interaction of coastal and marine constituencies and policy makers of the Gulf of Mexico Region to improve the application of science to policy and enhance effective management of resources.


Adaptive Planning for Sea-Level Rise: Legal Issues for Local Government Workshop will be held on January 23 at the Harte Research Institute room 127 from 1:00 - 5:30pm. For more information or to view presentations select planning workshops on the left menu.
