Abstract: The Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Monitoring Implementation Plan and five subsequent workshops provide a foundation for a sustainable monitoring program that is driven by specific hypoxia management objectives and products. These efforts led to advancements in monitoring extent (i.e. intermittent expansion of temporal and spatial coverage) and technology (e.g. glider application) to meet the core program requirements. However, the monitoring program has been supported primarily through NOAA competitive research funding (i.e. NGOMEX program), which ended in FY 2015. For this sixth workshop (NGI, Stennis Space Center, MS, 12-13 September, 2016), a programmatic and financial strategy to support a requirement-driven monitoring program will be prepared as a pre-meeting document. This strategy will be explored further at the workshop to identify the optimal monitoring requirements for management needs, and funding mechanisms and logistics of implementation based on the needs, abilities and constraints of partners.
