IOOS Represents a Tremendous Infrastructure…


…Many Elements of Which are Already Built and Operational…


Finding the “On-Ramps” for Industry is Key


… Building them Where Necessary …


…and Ensuring those “On-Ramps” can be found


Partnership is Key

Roles Must Be Defined

An

Ungodly

Beast

The

Holy

Trinity


Exit Strategies

Must Also

Be Considered


“The role of industry in the building, operation and maintenance of the system should be clearly defined. Industry should not be viewed solely as a provider of technology or a user of the system, but as a full partner in the planning, implementation and operation of the system. This will require developing joint strategies with industry, for things as diverse as long-term sensor and platform technology, protection of intellectual property rights, and identification of possible ventures to create value-added products.”

- Admiral James Watkins on the IOOS


Improved Flood Forecast Mapping

Tar River Basin, NC

Goal – Provide Web based flood inundation maps from NWS operational text forecasts to emergency managers during flood events

  • Partnered data (LIDAR Topo Engineering Data) from FEMA and NC

  • Built unsteady hydraulic model for 73 miles of Tar River

  • Mapped flood forecasts in a GIS and provided over the Web

  • Used operationally by SERFC as flood forecast tool during Hurricane Isabel – Sept. 2003

Pago Pago

Integrating Tide and Buoy Data for Tsunami Warnings

Current Tsunami Tide Stations

Expanded Tsunami Tide Stations

  • DART Buoys detect changes in wave height of less than a millimeter in long-period waves

  • Tide Stations detect changes in water levels, including anomalies

  • Software provides Tide Station data at greater frequency (every minute) for integration into the Tsunami Warning Network

Who We Need To Get To…


That IOOS Has Needs That Might Best be Addressed By Industry; Among These are:1. Value Added Products2. Design/Build the System3. Operate/Maintain the Network

…and What We Need to Tell Them:


IOOS NEEDS1. Value Add2. Design/Build3. Operate/Maintain

…and that We Understand What Motivates Industry:

INDUSTRY NEEDS1. Profit2. Growth3. Re-Investment


IOOS NEEDS1. Value Add2. Design/Build3. Operate/Maintain

…and that We are Committed to Working with them to Determine the Most Effective Means to “Cross Walk” these:

What opportunities does the IOOSoffer the private sector?

  • The industry opportunities:

    • Data to support business planning

    • Increased operational efficiency

    • More effective design of offshore platforms, pipelines, and risers

    • Data to support crisis management, response planning, and compliance with federal regulations

    • Partnering with academic and governmental organizations for research and development

    • Additional research, e.g., larval movement (shrimp), identification of hypoxic areas and toxic algae blooms (Fisheries)

  • IOOS opportunities

    • Providing data

    • Providing data products


Tampa Bay PORTS

Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System

Operated in collaboration with NOAA/NOS/Center for Operational Ocean Products and Services (CO-OPS) and local maritime interests

Funding for operations from State and County trust funds and local users

www.co-ops.nos.noaa.gov/

or

ompl.marine.usf.edu/PORTS


DATA:A Few Clouds on the Horizon… but Fairly Smooth Sailing Ahead

USERS of CURRENT IOOS DATA

  • Maritime / Shipping / Ports & Harbors

    • Concerned re: Future of PORTS and NWLON

    • Ocean.US has been in contact, responded to their concerns, corresponded and attended their meetings

  • Value-Added Resellers

    • Concerned re: Competition from IOOS

    • Ocean.Us has been in contact, participated in Panel at AMS, is developing a Position Paper

      USERS of FUTURE IOOS DATA

  • S. Asia Catastrophe has Focused World’s (and Washington’s) Attention on Ocean Observing Systems

  • Many Industries Heretofore Unconcerned (e.g. Resorts, Recreation) are Now Similarly More Attentive


Take Home Messages

  • IOOS …

  • Saves lives, saves livelihoods, and improves quality of life

  • Builds on existing capabilities for the greatest benefit to society

  • Is user driven

  • Requires a sustained commitment to develop, maintain, and ensure the highest quality for the system

  • Involves collaboration from multiple agencies and organizations – locally, nationally and internationally
