A great start to the New Year! The Mona Geoinformatics Institute (MGI) has been bestowed the RJR-Gleaner Honour Award for Science and Technology for 2018. Through all three major divisions – Environment and Natural Hazards, Software Development, and Human & Social – our institute continues to apply research and innovation in practical ways using empirical evidence to inform decision-making. As the coastal dynamics modelling unit of the Environment and Natural Hazards Division, MGIBlue has contributed significantly to advancing coastal, hazards and environmental research of the institute.
The MGI family wishes to express our heartfelt gratitude to the media houses, institutions, clients and peers providing this recognition and support. We look forward to continuing our service in science and technology.
Exciting times for the New Year as we expand MGIBlue with new adventures including: shoreline erosion monitoring technology, developing solid waste policy for our Blue Economy, and Sargassum invasion early-warning system. Full-steam ahead!
