BATON ROUGE - The LSU AgCenter Department of Agricultural Economics is getting a three-year award of more that $750,000.

Researchers from the Center for Natural Resource Economics and Policy will study the value of the environmental monitoring system in the Gulf of Mexico.

The AgCenter says sensors and buoys provide important data on weather and other factors about the ecosystem in the Gulf.

Rich Kazmierczak, leader of the AgCenter team, says the monitoring system gives science based biological, chemical, and physical data for marine industrial operations, coastal hazards, public safety and health, ecosystems and water.

Overall funding for the system is expected to exceed $54 billion during the next 15 years.
