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

  • 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

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

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
