  1. Chesapeake Bay Observing System:WEBSITE CONTENT Michael T. Koterba and Elizabeth Smith Co-Directors, CBOS January 11, 2005

  2. Visualization of a Chesapeake Bay Observing System:BAYCAST • Example of Possible Product • Some Proposed Key Components

  3. Subscription Model • CBOS BAYCAST--a subscription • for the on or near the water user... • Select data from location(s) via an interactive map ... • Select near-real time and/or modeled data from a menu, which includes.....

  4. OBSERVATIONAL and PREDICTED DATA • Weather • Hydrodynamics • Water and Bio-Quality Data Priorities Based on User Needs • Workshop 2004 Break-out groups (Done) • CB Modeling communities—Nowcast and Forecast, CBP Non-tidal and Tidal Monitoring (Done) • On the Water Users (Ongoing): • Maritime Association Members (D. White) • Weatherflow (J. Titlow) • Boat U.S. (E. Dickenson)

  5. Current Identified Needs CBOS BAYCAST Data: WeatherHydrodynamic1Water-Bio Quality1 Barometric Wave height, Temperature1 pressure direction, & Salinity (SC)1 Visibility frequency Dissolved oxygen1 Wind speed Water levels Turbidity (sediment & direction Current speed or algal)1 Doppler and direction1 Chlorophyll (floure- Seasonal Bathymetry & sence)1 climate & shoreline Nutrients (nitrogen, forecast elevation phosphorous)1 1 To extent possible in depth profile

  6. Other CBOS BAYCAST attributes • Modeling Hind-, Now-, Fore- cast to augment near-real time observational data … • Hot button-Cell Phone Number for user feedback (Tell us what we don’t see, what you want to see, …) • CBOS Website Headline News, Feature Articles • Link to CBOS(MACOORA-IOOS) Archival Data Center Page • Logos ours, and those of (near) real-time, nowcast, and forecast data providers to this website (exclusitivity) • Selected near real-time links to others (e.g. CB tributary non-tidal upland or other tidal stations) • CBOS Directory – POC Information • Mission, Vision (including Geographic), Objectives

  7. Headline News…geared to current events, findings, seasonal forecasts, funding opportunities, etc. For example: Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System and the John Smith Water Trail NOAA Administrator Vice Admiral Lautenbacher recently announced preliminary plans for the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office to develop a Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System, and to work with partners to incorporate it into the John Smith Water Trail as part of …

  8. CBOS BAYCAST Outreach and Education • Needs to be ongoing … • In relation to each observational component • weather, hydrodynamics , and water-bio • quality • From the start, build it as part of the value-added • observational product • Begin by looking at what partners, and other • fully-operational observational systems are doing

  9. CBOS-MACOORA-IOOS Archival Data Center • Open access WEB site of archived, historical observational data • With DMACS-architectured meta, qa/qc, and historical observational data • Mapped or gridded data (SAV, Habitat, Oyster Beds, Phyto-Zoo plankton abundance or species) • Logos and links to data providers • Hot button user feedback • Headline News • Outreach and Education • THIS MUST BE A PLANNED PRODUCT OF ANY OBSERVATIONAL EFFORT

  10. Ultimate Process • User-identified needs converted to • Data Acquisition and Management (Data A&M) plus • Modeling will drive • Website content
