30 Crisis Management Systems Accidental or intentional oil or chemical spills Search and rescue support Response Models

31 Crisis Management System Management/Training –Oil Spills –Chemical/Gas Releases –Search and Rescue –Marine Emergency –Nuclear Fall-Out Resource Management Environmental Data Management Contingency Plans/Action Lists Networked Application

32 Applications/Users US Navy/Coast Guard Mexican Navy/Coast Guard Argentine Navy/Coast Guard Irish Coast Guard SASEMAR (Spanish Coast Guard) MCA China AMIS

33 US Navy Oceanographic Office COASTMAP Application Client/Server application Real time data from 275 sensors Supports operational modeling and homeland security activities Application to seven bays and harbors in US, Timor Sea, Straits of Taiwan and elsewhere

34 USCG: SAROPS - Search and Rescue Optimal Planning System

35 Demonstration

36 Conclusions COASTMAP provides –Data linkage and analysis backbone Oceanographic Meteorological –Transport models Oil, chemical, search & rescue –Response Management tools –Re-locatable –Extensible

37 Conclusions, cont. Demonstrated linkages –Atmospheric model (NOAA regional) –Water level data (PORTS) –Hydrodynamics –Pollutant transport –Emergency management

38 IOOS Specific Questions –Modes of cooperation –Private sector needs, conflicts –Business opportunities –Potential areas of conflict

39 Modes of Cooperation Needs –access to data, metadata –(especially data availability) Contributions –Bottom up approach –Client centric focus

40 Business Opportunities Cooperative development projects –e.g. SAROPS project Partnerships bring good value to client Areas of Conflict –Collisions in servicing perceived client base
