Why organize all this

Why Organize All This?

  • Ocean & coastal regimes are vitally important to

    • Sustainable economic activity

    • Quality of life

  • Seven Societal Benefits targeted

    • Improve the safety & efficiency of marine operations

    • Mitigate effects of natural hazards more effectively

    • Improve predictions of climate change & their effects

    • Minimize public health risks

    • Protect & restore healthy coastal marine ecosystems

    • Sustain living marine resources

    • Improve homeland security


Why organize all this1

Why Organize All This?

  • Challenge: too little information available-- and lack capacity to use it wisely

  • Hence IOOS focuses on building

    • Observations capacity

    • Modeling and analysis capacity, and

    • Data management & communicationsto connect and deliver to applications

  • While also making investments toward

    • Research(smarter use & refresh technology)

    • Education and Outreach(pubic use & operators)


Fiscal challenge in usa

Fiscal Challenge in USA

  • CHALLENGE –

  • Prove new investment is worthwhile

  • Manage it for best results


Broad participation of us government

Broad Participation of US Government

  • ‘White House’-level Committee on Ocean Policy

  • 14 Departments and independent agencies

  • Multiple policy offices

  • Tasked to implementUS Ocean Action Plan

  • -- includes IOOS


Regional association participation

Modeling and analysis

Modeling and Analysis

The 1st IOOS Development Plan calls for a modeling effort that will

Improve, develop, test & validate operational models for all seven societal goals;

Produce more accurate & comprehensive estimates of current states of the marine environment, ecosystems & living resources;

Improve, develop & apply data assimilation techniques to initialize & update models for more accurate forecasts of state changes; &

Optimize the observing subsystem to achieve these objectives

MAST formed in Fall 2006


To what purpose

To What Purpose

Make BetterDecisions!


What should you do

What Should You Do?

  • Relax, take it easy

  • Government will give it all to you!

  • Just Kidding!

  • Tell us what you need

  • Explain how you’ll benefit

  • The ‘value proposition’ is not yet accepted
