Top Priorities for HiOOS Cont. • Marine and Coastal Solutions International: • Coastal Landowners: Water Quality data for SMAs (making data available) • Malama Kai Foundation: Guide books to learn about dive sites to learn about buoy – opportunity to educate stakeholders • West HI regional fishery management area: use HiOOS products to train community • Info on temperature/depth and currents in area of pipeline • Data limitation stated up front and reflected on website • Hawaii County Fire Department: • Search and Rescue Perspective: to understand local currents around islands • Ocean Safety Perspective: assess beaches around state
Top Priorities for HiOOS Cont. • HIMB: • assessable data for problem-based learning modules (real time data) • Beneficial to hotels and tour operators – can be part of educational opportunity • Offer tutorial on how to utilize data sets & thematic areas on how to use and access data • Bishop Museum: • Working with USGS (PBIN) – integration of geospatial data sets • Need to build appreciation & support
Top Priorities for HiOOS Cont. • Sea Grant: • Science – policy interface (whole array of things, 2-way) • Organizing product sets & websites • Industry specific data sets to address needs/built into implementation plan • archiving data sets: coral reef monitoring, fish larvae surveys, toxic algal blooms, boxed jellyfish • land use patterns in coastal zone & advanced planning • emphasis on visual products for metadata display (goal for DMAC) • uniform presentation • Management issues: how to keep it going, prioritization, performance & assessment
Top Priorities for HiOOS Cont. • UH Dept of Oceanography: • Tailor websites to better clientele (e.g. Widgets) • Take advantage of physical modeling & combined w/water quality data • Mechanical to deal with very near shore water quality (jet skis) • Lifeguards at beaches?
