Course: A Vision of Knowledge and Binational Sustainability for the Gulf of Mexico

The vital importance of the Gulf of Mexico to maintain sound economic development, as well as its vast biodiversity, has been recognized in Mexico and the United States at both the state and federal levels. Due to this need for knowledge and marine understanding, the University of Veracruz has proposes a Marine Biology undergraduate program and a master's degree in marine and coastal ecosystems in Tuxpan, Veracruz. A course has been proposed to teach students of the three academic levels, bachelor, masters and doctoral degrees, focusing on knowledge and sustainability for the Gulf of Mexico. The topics in the course will be taught by researchers and experts in marine areas and representing various prestigious institutions. The subjects were divided into three approaches, all of equal importance, which are:
1.The Gulf of Mexico Ecosystem Overview. Dr. Saul Alvarez-Borrego (CICESE) Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico
2.Understanding the International Law of the Sea and its Role in Governing the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. Richard Mclaughlin. (Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies (HRI), Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Texas, USA).
3.Natural Disasters Prevention. Dr. Alberto Vazquez de la Cerda ( University of Veracruz, Veracruz, Mexico, and HRI), and Dr. Adalberto Tejeda (University of Veracruz).
