1 National Ocean Service Budget Update for the NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel Glenn Boledovich, Chief NOS Policy, Planning and Analysis Division May 7, 2013

2 PL 113-2: $326M for NOAA NOS funding includes: $50M for mapping, charting, geodesy, and marine debris services $3M for Coastal Impact Assistance $7M to repair damaged PORTS, NWLON, and IOOS equipment and $2.3M for repair of NOS facilities NOS Highlights: Hydro surveys for chart updates, inundation modeling, and marine debris Shoreline surveys using bathymetric/topographic LIDAR as well as Shoreline assessment and restoration suitability analysis Vertical datum updates in Sandy-affected areas Sandy Supplemental Funding 2

3 FY 2013 Budget Status There are short and long term consequences resulting from sequestration We will manage these cuts with the least possible harm to our mission, people and partners Final actions and decisions are pending Image 3

6 Budget Highlights: Navigation, Observations and Positioning + $1.4M to accelerate incorporation of hydrographic survey data into charts + $8M to increase federal coordination, collection and processing capacity of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data + $3M to accelerate Gravity for the Redefinition of the American Vertical Datum (GRAV-D) + $3.8M to fully maintain and expand the National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON) and conduct tidal current measurements + $11.4M to fund IOOS marine sensor innovation and enhance support for regional observations 6

7 FY2014 Budget Summary The FY14 budget is a good start towards restoring the balance of science, service and stewardship across NOAA. It makes strategic investments in research, observations and long-term protection of our vulnerable coastal areas and supports a resilient nation that is able to prepare for, respond to and recover from hazards. This budget enable NOS to blend growing public partnership with its data, tools and services to advance coastal resiliency, intelligence networking and resource conservation. Image 7

9 Accelerate Processing of Hydrographic Survey Data ($ in thousands) FY12 Spend Plan (with NWS Reprogram) FY14 Base FY14 Program ChangeFY14 PB Sub-program: Navigation, Observations and Positioning $177,346$180,138$27,180$207,318 Accelerate Processing of Hydrographic Survey Data $49,524$50,669$1,710$52,379 Why: Additional processing capacity would allow additional cartographic capacity to add existing hydrographic data to nautical charts to further improve the safety of maritime commerce and marine transportation. What: NOAA will increase capacity at NOAA’s hydrographic survey processing centers, increasing the number of surveys evaluated, validated and applied to nautical charts.

10 Coastal LIDAR Data Collection and Coordination ($ in thousands) FY12 Spend Plan (with NWS Reprogram) FY14 Base FY14 Program ChangeFY14 PB Sub-program: Navigation, Observations and Positioning $177,346$180,138$27,180$207,318 Shoreline Mapping $2,265$2,279$7,993$10,272 Why: Rapid changes to coasts are generating the need for improved geospatial data to improve safe navigation, and decision-making for conservation, planning, recreation, and other uses. What: This increase will allow for broader topographic/ bathymetric LIDAR data collection concurrent with aerial imagery and improve coordination across agencies through shared products, standards and protocols.

11 Accelerate the Gravity for the Redefinition of the American Vertical Datum (GRAV-D) ($ in thousands) FY12 Spend Plan (with NWS Reprogram) FY14 Base FY14 Program ChangeFY14 PB Sub-program: Navigation, Observations and Positioning $177,346$180,138$27,180$207,318 Accelerate GRAV-D $3,000 $3,159 $6,159 Why: Updating the Nation’s gravity-based geoid model across the Nation will provide critical elevation data with a multitude of applications. What: The increase will accelerate data collection by 12 percent per year and advance the release of the new gravity based geoid to The geoid will improve elevation measurements from 40cm to 2cm of accuracy.

12 Tide and Current Data Program ($ in thousands) FY12 Spend Plan (with NWS Reprogram) FY14 Base FY14 Program ChangeFY14 PB Sub-program: Navigation, Observations and Positioning $177,346$180,138$27,180$207,318 Tide and Current Data Program $27,443$27,984 $3,963 $31,947 Why: Closing physical oceanographic geospatial gaps will benefit multiple NOAA and broader Federal Government mission requirements, including navigation safety and forecasting for extreme weather events. What: NOAA will fully maintain the National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON), fill key NWLON gaps, deploy new technology to existing stations, and conduct additional tidal current observations.

13 Marine Sensor Innovation ($ in thousands) FY12 Spend Plan (with NWS Reprogram) FY14 Base FY14 Program ChangeFY14 PB Sub-program: Navigation, Observations and Positioning $177,346$180,138$27,180$207,318 Marine Sensor Innovation 00 $10,000 Why: U.S. IOOS investments in technology innovation will propel marine sector businesses, job growth, and scientific discovery. What: NOAA will establish a research and development program to develop and operationalize a variety of technologies to enable timely, accurate, and cost effective observations of changing environmental conditions and corresponding biological responses. NOAA will incorporate two or more emerging tools or technologies into operations of two or more U.S. IOOS regions every three years from 2016 to 2018.

14 IOOS Regional Observations ($ in thousands) FY12 Spend Plan (with NWS Reprogram) FY14 Base FY14 Program ChangeFY14 PB Sub-program: Navigation, Observations and Positioning $177,346$180,138$27,180$207,318 IOOS Regional Observations$22,956$23,095$2,425$25,520 Why: IOOS regional observations and models deliver both real-time and long-term ocean observations that support operational oceanography, responses to environmental challenges, and climate research. What: NOAA will increase the Federal support to the eleven Regional Associations, increasing capacity to foster the national and international application of local data and products broadly across oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes.
