NANOOS activities to date: Participation in April 2003 NEPTUNE Pacific Northwest Workshop Received $100K planning grant from NOAA CSC Pacific Northwest Regional Ocean Observing System Workshop October 2003, Portland State University, Portland, Oregon - signed a charter establishing NANOOS - appointed an Interim Steering Committee: David Martin (UW/APL) Jan Newton (WA Dept of Ecology) Jack Barth (OSU) Antonio Baptista (OGI/OHSU) Mike Kosro (OSU) - governance workshop to be held ~ April 2004
Pacific Coastal Observing System (PaCOS) (formerly ACCEO – Alliance for California Current Ecosystem Observations) A plan for an observing system for the US EEZ of the Pacific Coast that supports the fishery resources, protected species, and ecosystem responsibilities of NOAA Fisheries. Chair: William Fox, Office of Science & Technology Coordinators: John Hunter (SWFSC) and Elizabeth Clarke (NWFSC)
Pacific Coastal Observing System (PaCOS) Activities to Date: Formed Board of Governors Board of Governors meeting, 30 June – 1 July 2003 (Scripps) Science Planning Meeting, 3-5 September 2003 (Seattle) design an optimal observing system working groups day 1 highly migratory species and coastal pelagic species (albacore & bluefin tuna, sharks, mackeral, anchovies, etc.) groundfish (hake, rockfish, flatfish, etc.) protected species (salmon, marine mammals, turtles, birds) working groups day 2 fish environment Draft plan in progress
In concept, expands the Monterey Bay Crescent Ocean Research Consortium (MBCORC) to include institutions between Pt. Conception and the Oregon border Hopes to build on previous, and coordinate with, ongoing programs including ICON, CIMT, NEOCO, SiMON, AOSN, CalCOFI, SCOPE, CI- CORE and PISCO CenCOOS Central California Ocean Observing System

Activities to Date Meeting held 3/10/03, prior to Ocean.US workshop – Invited MBCORC institutions plus Cal Poly, Bodega Bay Marine Lab, SFSU, Stanford. Resolution was drafted for delivery to the workshop by F. Chavez (MBARI) and M. McManus (UCSC). Proposal submitted to NOAA by M. McNutt (MBARI) and G. Griggs (UCSC) and L.L. Martin (UCSC) on behalf of CenCOOS for "Leadership in Coordination of Ocean Observing". This was funded and an advertisement for a regional coordinator recently went out. (6 applicants to date)

COCM: Coastal Ocean Current Monitoring Program First State Proposition 40 and then supplemented by Proposition 50 mandated $7.5 and $13.5 million for implementing coastal monitoring. The California State Coastal Conservancy is tasked with distributing and managing the money. The initial CSCC COCM RFP was for planning letters to establish interested parties. July 15, 2003: initial planning letters were due 3 were submitted, one from N. Cal, two from the south. November 15, 2003: invitation to submit full proposals. May 15, 2004: Full proposals due to CSCC
Initial funding levels limited the scope of the possible observatory. NCAHOOtS is choosing to use Surface Current Mapping to establish the backbone, supplemented with other technologies as money becomes available.
Standard and high resolution systems are proposed for between the existing Bodega and Monterey arrays
Our goal is to have both standard and long range surface current mapping capabilities in the region from Bodega to Pt Sur since this is the area with the largest potential for a major accident
A huge caution: the COCMP RFP is only for infrastructure, not Operations! It will provide the BACKBONE, but…. Unfortunately, the coastal zone is littered with start-up monitoring efforts, many of which have foundered from lack of operational funds. For this effort to be successful, the end users of the products must recognize the need for sustained operations. The main challenge is to identify and engage the stakeholders to build a system which will meet the needs of the local, state, and federal regulators who will utilize the products generated by NCAHOOtS.
Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System SCCOOS Consortium Members are working together to develop an integrated coastal ocean observatory within the Southern California Bight –for scientific purposes; and –for the benefit of society SCCOOS will address environmental issues spanning local, regional, state, national and international interests, including coastal hazards, marine life resources, and water quality.
SCCOOS Consortium Members California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo California State University, Los Angeles Centro de Investigacion Cientifica y de Educacion Superior de Ensenada Jet Propulsion Laboratory, National Aeronautics and Space Administration Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego Universidad Autónoma de Baja California University of California, Santa Barbara University of California, Irvine University of California, Los Angeles University of Southern California *recent board action to add SCCWRP
17 and 18 of September 2003 SCCOOS is committed to producing a governance structure that: 1) recognizes the expertise, leadership, effectiveness and proven track record of the research community in implementing and sustaining long term observation programs 2) formally engages a recognized body of agency end-users as advisors 3) employs a strong project development component that actively engages with end-user to develop new customers, products, services, opportunities as well as feedback from existing end-users.
