1 Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems INDUSTRY DAY 11 Aug 2005

2 Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems The Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Regional Association for the Pacific NW

3 What are we? A regional organization through which to integrate and sustain existing observing capability, to strategize for new operational systems, and to provide easy access to data, data products, model forecasts, etc. about regional marine conditions –Developing a user-driven regional coastal ocean observing system ocean includes inland marine waters (head of tide to EEZ) user-driven means users define priorities, delivery A system designed to produce and disseminate ocean observations and related products deemed necessary to the users, in a common manner and according to sound scientific practice

4 Fundamental Issue: We are limited and poorly coordinated with respect to environmental data supporting fundamental societal needs R. Spinrad, NOAA

5 The Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Oceans & Coasts Component of the U.S. Integrated Earth Observing System (IEOS) & the International GEOSS NOAA Navy NASA NSF USACE USGS MMS EPA USCG DOE An Interagency Collaboration for the Public Good T. Malone, Ocean.US

6 What will IOOS do? The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) is developing as a user-driven, integrated system of observations and data telemetry, data management and communications (DMAC), and data analysis and modeling that routinely, reliably, and continuously provides data and information required to address seven societal goals: (1) Improve predictions of climate change and weather and their effects on coastal communities and the nation; (2) Improve the safety and efficiency of maritime operations; (3) Improve forecasts of natural hazards and mitigate their effects more effectively; (4) Improve homeland security; (5) Minimize public health risks; (6) Protect and restore healthy coastal ecosystems more effectively; and (7) Sustain living marine resources. 1 System, 7 Goals

7 A brief history of IOOS NOPP established by law in 1997 NORLC has oversight of NOPP NORLC recommends an IOOS in NOPP establishes Ocean.US in 2000 to implement a user-driven IOOS –Global IOOS and Coastal IOOS –Coastal IOOS to have two components: National Backbone Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems managed by Regional Associations

8 GCOOS CeNCOOS NANOOS AOOS PacIOOS SECOORA MACOORA SCCOOS NERA CaRA Coastal Component of IOOS GLOS National Backbone Federal Agencies Responsible EEZ & Great Lakes Core variables required by RAs & Fed Agencies Network of sentinel & reference stations Data Standards/Exchange Protocols Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems Regional Associations Responsible Involve private & public sectors Inform Federal Agencies of user needs Enhance the backbone based on user needs Incorporate sub–regional systems T. Malone, Ocean.US

9 The National Federation of Regional Associations (NFRA) Foster communication between the RAs and the Federal agencies that establish standards and protocols for an integrated ocean observing system, operate the backbone of the national system, and help fund the RAs; Serve as an advocate for the RAs to the federal agencies, the Congress and the general public; Participate with the federal agencies and Ocean.US in establishing, standards, protocols, and best practices for coastal ocean observing systems; Promote the science, technologies, education, and management required for continuous improvement and reliable operation of coastal ocean observing systems among the Regional Associations and with the federal agencies; and Promote understanding of the potential of an integrated ocean observing system to meet societys needs as identified in the seven societal pillars of the IOOS.

19 System Design: strategy Integrate what we have: NANOOS Pilot project Strategize to build what we need: Prioritize NANOOS backbone and RCOOS

20 20 A Pilot Coastal Ocean Observatory for the Estuaries and Shores of Oregon and Washington Goal: Regional integration and expansion of existing but disparate observation and modeling capabilities for the estuaries and shores of Oregon (OR) and Washington (WA). Explore and advance the following objectives: Create a regional observation network Create a regional modeling system Create a cross-site information system Create cross-site quality metrics Develop cross-training mechanisms Proactively engage regional and local communities Proactively participate in the design of: A river-to-ocean NANOOS A national IOOS

23 System Design GOAL: To identify and prioritize user-driven data products and design the observational system that can be responsive to these needs. In 3 rd Planning Workshop, we gained input on: * What are the specific, prioritized data products and who are the users who need these? * Based on these prioritized products, what variables are needed? * Given the priority variables identified, what are the system design priorities (location, measurement capabilities, phasing, etc.) for various technologies: Buoys; HF; Satellite infrastructure; Surveys; Other platforms; Models; Data output ? Based on this and other input, a system design vision document will be drafted, compiling and synthesizing the information, and will be used for outreach and further refinement.
