1 U.S. IOOS ® Briefing for RDML Glang Suzanne Skelley, CAPT Scott Kuester, & Jen Rhoades US IOOS Program Office 1

2 U.S. IOOS Program Overview Enables Decision making and Science WHO: WHAT: Observation Data Management Modeling & Analysis Research & Development Education & Training Governance & Mgmt WHY: 7 Societal Goals, 1 System Predictions of climate change and weather Safety and efficiency of maritime operations Forecasts of natural hazards Improve homeland security Minimize public health risks Protect and restore healthy coastal ecosystems Sustain living marine resources WHERE: Global Coastal (EEZ to tidal waters) 2

3 U.S. IOOS Program Overview 3

4 U.S. IOOS Regional Associations  U.S. IOOS Regional partners are essential to building and supporting U.S. IOOS  11 Regional Associations (RAs) guide development of and stakeholder input to regional observing activities  RAs serve the nation’s coastal communities, including the Great Lakes, the Caribbean Pacific territories, and Freely Associated States  RAs provide increased observations, distinctive knowledge, and critical technological abilities, and apply these towards the development of products to meet regional and local needs 4

5 U.S. IOOS Program Office & Appropriations Provide Programmatic Leadership: Build the structure and support necessary to advance implementation and recognition of U.S. IOOS Foster Operational Capability: Lead and coordinate Federal and non-Federal contributions to U.S. IOOS Forge Robust Partnerships: Initiate and sustain relationships for participation in IOOS by Federal agencies, non-Federal groups and industry Champion Regional and Stakeholder Interests: Connect Regional products and services to national needs, and connect Federal groups to Regional entities 5 *FY13 enacted values are post-rescissions and sequester and assumes approval by Congress. **MSI Projects total is part of IOOS Regional Observations & equals the sum of the three rows below that row.

6 ICOOS Act Implementation 6 IOOS Program Office & IOOC Independent Cost Estimate Public Private Use Policy Certification guidelines IOOS Advisory Committee Biennial Report to Congress

7 U.S. IOOS Improvements to Coastal & Ocean Data 7

8 U.S. IOOS DMAC is NOW! Google Crisis Map developed during superstorm Sandy using a simple kml data feed from SECOORA SECOORA published all their data in that feed including CO-OPS/NDBC, etc. 8

9 U.S. IOOS Demonstrated Value Extreme events: –Hurricane Sandy – IOOS information enabled over 6,700 containers to be diverted from the New York/New Jersey area to Virginia (value estimated at ≈ $1B) –Ocean Acidification – Pacific Northwest oyster hatcheries recovered and are again major contributors to the $111 million West Coast shellfish industry –Oil Spills – HF radar data used by NOAA’s forecast models to track oil spills, including the Cosco Busan and Deepwater Horizon spills HF radar data used operationally in the U.S. Coast Guard’s Search and Rescue Optimal Planning System (SAROPS) Over 13 million ocean observations ingested into the World Meteorological Organization through our partnership with NDBC 9

10 U.S. IOOS Marine Sensor Innovation Projects FY13 ≈ $3M –≈ $1M - Projects to accelerate technology transitions into operations Ocean acidification monitoring in the Pacific Harmful algal bloom monitoring in the Gulf of Maine –$1M - Sensor Validation & Verification (Alliance for Coastal Technologies (ACT)) –$1M – Super-Regional Modeling Testbed/Coastal & Ocean Modeling Testbed (COMT) FY14 $10M in President’s 2014 Budget –$8M - FFO to be issued seeking LOIs for projects to accelerate technology transitions into operations –$1M – Sensor Verification & Validation –$1M - COMT 10

11 U.S. IOOS HF Radar 11 Funding FY12, FY13, FY14 ≈ $5M of O&M Stakeholders > 30 institutions operate HF Radars Used by > 40 government/private entities Partnership with Industry: US-based CODAR Ocean Sensor Who depends on it USCG Search and Rescue; Oil spill response Water quality Criminal forensics Commercial marine navigation Offshore energy HABs Marine fisheries Emerging – Maritime Domain Awareness Emerging – Tsunami; Solar Activity Decreases search area by 66% in 96 hours

12 H.R. 2219 ICOOS Act Reauthorization Integrated Coastal and Ocean Observing System Act of 2009 expires 09/30/13 ICOOS Act Reauthorization –Existing community support for Re-Authorization (IOOS Association, Consortium for Ocean Leadership, local and regional stakeholders, and members of Congress) NOAA Input to Modify ICOOS Act –Enable Staggering of System Advisory Committee Members No authority to stagger terms Risk for losing institutional knowledge on Committee –Funding transfer Unable to transfer funds to state, local, and private sector organizations under current authority –Cap on budget House Bill H.R. 2219 authorizes U.S. IOOS at $11.5M lower than the President’s 2014 Budget FY14 PB is $41.1M Net increase of $5M over the President’s 2013 Budget and a net increase of $3.6M compared to the FY 2013 Enacted budget for U.S. IOOS 12
