OOI issues


Cooperative Agreement(5.5 yrs of construction, 2 years of operations)Cooperative Support Agreements(for each of the 3 types of funding)

These are the binding agreements between NSF and Ocean Leadership that set the terms and conditions for managing and implementing the OOI infrastructure.


Initial award is for 5.5 years of construction, then another 2 years of full-time operations.

System consists of high latitude moorings, coastal moorings, cabled sea-floor systems, all connected via sophisticated cyber-infrastructure.


Accelerated start 2 years of full-time operations.

Thanks to ARRA $$, the OOI officially started on September 1.

Year 1 Funding

ARRA: $105.93 M

MREFC: $20.19 M ($5.91 M from FY08 + $14.28 M from FY10 (pending))

O&M: < $400 K

Challenges and opportunities

Challenges and Opportunities 2 years of full-time operations.

Design changes & funding delays led to considerable cynicism and disillusionment in the community

First steps in mitigating misconceptions:

Science Workshop Nov 11-12 in Baltimore

Science Workshop ~ April, Western US

Defined proposal process

Science scenarios for future proposals


Connecting to our community 2 years of full-time operations.

Science Workshop - Baltimore, Nov 11-12

Town Hall meeting - SF AGU, Dec 2009

Town Hall meeting - Ocean Sciences, Feb 2010

Special Observing Session - Ocean Sciences

Science Workshop - west, April

Enhanced web presence - implementing communciation plan

Increased engagement by OOI Program Advisory Committee


Challenges and opportunities1

Challenges and Opportunities 2 years of full-time operations.

Other steps in generating excitement about ocean observing:

encourage dialogue at your institutions, particularly in the context of

- long-term implications of facilities

- new approaches for conducting research
