Presentation Transcript

    1. COASTAL OCEAN OBSERVING SYSTEMS

    3. WHAT METEOROLOGICAL DATA IS COLLECTED? Air temperature Barometric Pressure Wind speed Wind direction

    4. WHAT PHYSICAL OCEANOGRAPHIC DATA IS COLLECTED? Current Water levels Wave height Visibility Water temperature

    5. HOW IS THIS DATA COLLECTED? Instrument packages mounted on buoys platforms moorings

    6. WHY IS THIS DATA COLLECTED? Improve predictions of climate change Mitigate effects of natural hazards Improve the efficiency and safety of marine operations

    7. Protect and restore healthy coastal marine ecosystems Sustain living resources

    8. Improve national security Reduce public health risks

    9. WHO USES THIS DATA? Commercial mariners Scientists & Educators Coastal resource managers Search and rescue teams Emergency response teams Public health officials
