Welcome to the Canizaro Livingston Gulf States Center for Environmental Informatics (GulfSCEI, pronounced “Gulf Sea”). We foster inter-disciplinary collaboration within the University of New Orleans and between investigators across the Gulf of Mexico, and empower scientists and engineers with modern informatics tools to solve environmental problems of the coastal margin of the US Gulf States. We assist state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations and industrial partners to advance their educational, and research and development capabilities in environmental informatics. Questions and Inquiries about GulfSCEI should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
