The Gulf of Mexico States (Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas) have agreed, through their interactions with the Gulf of Mexico Program (GMP), to coordinate their estuarine and coastal monitoring and assessment activities and to investigate the development of a joint Gulf states Coastal Monitoring Program on the measurement of the status and trends of ecological condition in coastal resources. Through its involvement with the GMP and several Gulf state resource agencies, EPA's Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP) is assisting in the development of a framework for this integrated and comprehensive monitoring of Gulf coastal resources that will provide a Gulf-wide component for EPA's Coastal 2000 Program. EMAP is a nationwide EPA/ORD environmental monitoring and assessment program designed to provide information to evaluate the overall condition of a variety of coastal and terrestrial ecosystems.
