Who is the Gulf Monitoring Consortium?


The Gulf Monitoring Consortium (GMC) is a rapid response alliance that collects, analyzes and publishes images and other information acquired from space, from the air, and from the surface in order to investigate and expose pollution incidents that occur in the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast region. Our members engage in systematic monitoring of oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico using satellite images and mapping, aerial reconnaissance and photography, and on-the-ground and in-the-water observation and sampling to identify, locate and track new and ongoing pollution from fossil fuel extraction, transport, and production.

GMC Member Organizations:

The Consortium’s long-term goal is to ensure that industry and government pollution reports are accurate, credible and understandable, so that the true state of fossil fuel pollution related to energy development is widely acknowledged and incorporated into public policy and decision-making.
