2 World Data Center - Oceanography World Ocean Database 2005: global, comprehensive, integrated, scientifically quality-controlled ocean profile-plankton databases, Global ocean climatologies, e.g., World Ocean Atlas 2005 Conducts scientific analyses of oceanographic data, e.g., “Warming of the World Ocean”.
3 World Ocean Database 2005 (WOD05) 1)CFCs 11, 12, and 113 (freons) 2)Tritium(isotope) 3)Helium(noble gas) 4)ΔHe-3 (isotope) 5)ΔC-13 (isotope) 6)ΔC-14 (isotope) 7)Argon (noble gas) 8)Neon (noble gas) 9)O-18 (isotope) 10)transmissivity from WOCE, GEOSECS, TTO, and other cruises. Online now WOD05 contains an additional 900,000 temperature profiles compared to WOD01 as well as additional data for other variables; 2) New variables added to WOD05: History of the growth of the number Of temperature and salinity profiles available from NODC.
4 Accessing WOD World Ocean Database 2005 (WOD05) is an update of World Ocean Database 2001 (WOD01). All data are available online presorted by 10 degree geographic squares, by year or by user specified criteria. If you would like to receive the entire data set on DVD please contact NODC Services.NODC Services The WODselect retrieval system allows a user to search World Ocean Database 2005 using a user-specified search criteria. A distribution map and cast count of these search criteria will give the user the option to have the data extracted and placed on the NODC FTP site in the WOD05 native and ".csv" data format
6 IOOS: According to Ocean.US The IOOS is a coordinated national and international network of observations and data transmission, data management and communications (DMAC), and data analyses and modeling that systematically and efficiently acquires and disseminates data and information on past, present and future states of the oceans and U.S. coastal waters to the head of tide. - From the IOOS Development Plan [Adopted by ICOSRMI] Backup: 30
7 Background – IOOS the Big Picture Backup: 31 The US Ocean Action Plan calls for IOOS GEOSS is a comprehensive, coordinated, and sustained international network of observations IOOS contributes to GOOS which is the ocean component of GEOSS
8 NOAA’s Observation System Target Architecture Target Architecture Principles: Builds on existing systems Requirements-based Leverages new technology Full and open data sharing All data archived and accessible Interoperable Affordable & efficient Standards-based Sustainable Partnerships National International
9 IOOS Components U.S. IOOS has three interdependent components: Global Ocean Coastal Ocean Data Management & Communication (DMAC) MA Coastal Ocean Component GLsNE SE Go Mex Pac Isl GoA NW Global Ocean Component National Backbone Regional Observing Systems Resolution Lower Higher DMAC* C&No Cal So Cal Partners: Federal Agencies NOAA NSF Navy NASA EPA USGS MMS USACE Regional Associations State Agencies WMO/IOCPartners: Federal Agencies NOAA NSF Navy NASA EPA USGS MMS USACE Regional Associations State Agencies WMO/IOC * Ocean Component of NOAA GEO IDE
10 The Issue ThirteenThirteen ecological observing systems serving discrete living marine resource management missions NOAA Ocean Observing Systems are not meeting customer needs to the fullest extent possible, nor operating at maximum efficiency Inconsistent standards of operations Not optimized to meet multiple missions No interoperable or interactive analytical capability in near real-time Marine observing systems planned and operated independently for discrete operational and research missions, not optimized. Coastal inundation information available from various sources and formats for different for time periods
11 NOAA’s IOOS Observing Systems By NOAA Mission Goal (As defined in the NOAA Observing System Architecture) Commerce & Transportation Hydrographic Surveys (includes bathymetry) National Current Observations National Water Level Observation Network (NWLON) Physical Oceanographic Real Time System (PORTS) Shoreline Surveys Climate IOOS Arctic Observing System IOOS Argo Profiling Floats* IOOS Drifting Buoys IOOS Ocean Carbon Networks* IOOS Ocean Reference Station* IOOS Ships of Opportunity IOOS Tide Gauge Stations IOOS Tropical Moored Buoys Ecosystems Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP)* Coral Reef Ecosystem Integrated Observing System (CREIOS) Commercial Fisheries-Dependent Data Economic/ Sociocultural Observing System* Ecosystem Surveys Fish Surveys National Observer Program Protected Resource Surveys Recreational Fisheries-Dependent Data System-Wide Monitoring Program (SwiM) for Marine Sanctuaries* System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) for National Estuarine Research Reserves Passive Acoustics Observing System* National Status and Trends Program* Weather & Water Coastal Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) DART Voluntary Observing Ships Weather Buoys SEAWIFS* Coastal Total Systems: 23 Mission Support NOAA Ships NOAA Aircraft* NOAA Satellite (managed outside of IOOS) Global Total Systems: 8 Backup: 38 Backup: 39 * - NOAA is working to update Interagency IOOS documentation
12 IOOS Components: Global Designed to meet climate requirements but also supports: Weather prediction Global and coastal ocean prediction Marine hazards warning Transportation Marine environment and ecosystem monitoring Naval applications Homeland security Coordinated nationally and internationally. System 55% complete IOOS Tide gauge stations IOOS Drifting Buoys IOOS Tropical Moored Buoys IOOS Argo Profiling Floats IOOS Ships of Opportunity IOOS Ocean Reference Stations IOOS Ocean Carbon Networks IOOS Arctic Observing System Dedicated Ship Support Data & Assimilation Subsystems Management and Product Delivery Satellites (managed outside of IOOS)
13 IOOS Components: Coastal - National Backbone Supports other agency and partner efforts to manage our Nation’s oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes Coordinated nationally and regionally focusing on partnerships. System 25 – 35% complete.
14 IOOS Components: DMAC Definition The IOOS is a coordinated national and international network of observations and data transmission, data management and communications (DMAC), and data analyses and modeling that systematically and efficiently acquires and disseminates data and information on past, present and future states of the oceans and U.S. coastal waters to the head of tide. - From the IOOS Development Plan [Adopted by ICOSRMI] The DMAC is: Information technology infrastructure such as national backbone data systems, regional data centers, and archive centers connected by the Internet, and using shared standards and protocols. - From the DMAC Plan (March 2005)
