Ndbc and ioos ra relationship
NDBC and IOOS RA Relationship

  • Serve as a primary Real-Time Data Assembly Center (DAC)

    • Take OS data via NDBC “MODEM” program

    • Provide GTS Insertion

      • Real time distribution and archive center input

    • Provide RT Data Quality Assurance/QC

    • Enhance data utilization and visibility

    • Coordinate efforts with NOS/CO-OPS

  • Assist RA and component OS with technology, design, placement, standardization, etc.

  • Engage in partnerships and two-way technology transfer

  • RA should take active role in defining expansion of the NDBC backbone and/or additional observation requirements for existing NDBC platforms

    • Airlie House Report – 5X Backbone increase

5Parameter reported on tsunami buoys


The good news
The good news…

  • President’s FY05 budget contains funding for NDBC MON ocean parameter expansion (C-GOOS initiative).

    • Add ACDP and Surface Salnity to 14 buoys and 6 C-MAN stations.

    • Ship time for above

    • Formal commissioning of NDBC IOOS DAC

  • FY06: Continue expansion at same rate, begin directional waves effort

  • Goal: All standard MON buoys have full met, ocean and waves capability.


Upcoming initiatives
Upcoming Initiatives

  • Climate Reference Buoy

    • Highly calibrated standard installation plus new sensors for CO2, radiation, precip.

    • Prototype FY05, begin deployment FY06

    • Sentinel Subset of current network

  • NOPOP Buoy

    • In association with the current NOPP BAA proposal, provide a robust power and communications platform for instrument testing. FY05-07


Summarizing
Summarizing…

  • NDBC is both a data user and a backbone provider.

  • We can help you get your data to the world.

  • We want to be of service to SCCOOS and other RAs, and want to learn from you as well.

  • Looking positive for ocean sensor expansion FY05 forward (C-GOOS initiative).

  • RA help in backbone expansion and advocacy is desired.

  • Thanks!
