MACOORA Annual Meeting

October 22-23, 2008

Dartmouth, Massachusetts

Presenters:

Scott Glenn & Josh Kohut


MACOORA History:

The North East Observing System (NEOS)

Proto NEOS – 1999

Solomons, MD Workshop

Classic NEOS – 2000-2002

NEOS Revival – 2003

Maryland & New Hampshire Workshops

Response to Ocean.US & NOAA requests

MARA - 2004

Successful Proposal – Mid-Atlantic Regional Association

MACOORA - 2005

Renamed RA open for business.


Challenges and Promise of Designing and Implementing an

Ocean Observing System for U.S. Coastal Waters

Solomons, Maryland - 1999

Long-term Real-Time Coastal Ocean Observation Networks

Rationale

1) Safe and efficient navigation and marine operations

2) Efficient oil and hazardous material spill trajectory

prediction and clean up.

3) Monitoring, predicting and mitigating coastal hazards

4) Military operations

5) Search And Rescue

6) Prediction of harmful algal blooms, hypoxic conditions,

and other ecosystem or water quality phenomena

7) Scientific research

The Challenge -

Form this growing list into a linked federation of pre-operational observatories

  • sustained and integrated

  • maintained by NOPP-style partnerships

MACOORA 2005 Annual Meeting



Regional assumptions 2005
Regional Assumptions (2005) Association includes:

  • MACOORA will oversee evolution and operation of regional observing system - MARCOOS

  • Operational 24/7

  • Federal and regional support will be handled through RA

  • User engagement essential for sustainability


  • Funding the Existing Capacity in the Mid-Atlantic Association includes:

  • PORTS (5 x $200 K) $1 M

  • NDBC (New Buoys, Amb, Ches) $1 M

  • WRF @ WFO’s (5 x $200 K) $1 M

  • Southern New England Subregion $2 M

  • Long Island Sound Subregion $2 M

  • NY Bight & Harbor Subregion $2 M

  • Delaware Bay Subregion $2 M

  • Chesapeake Bay Subregion $2 M

  • Mid-Atlantic Region Obs $4 M

  • Data Management $1 M

  • Education & Outreach $1 M

  • Economic Impact $1 M

  • Total $20 M


  • FY2007 Regional Integrated Ocean Observing System Development

  • Letters of Intent (LOIs) due January 31, 2007.

  • Top LOIs were recommend to go forward.

  • Full Proposals due April 17, 2007.

  • “NOAA views this announcement as an

  • opportunity to demonstrate the regional

  • observing system concept.”

  • Three Focus Areas

  • Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (RCOOS) development

  • $500,000 to $2,000,000 per year for up to 3 years.

  • On March 28, 2007, years 2 & 3 were increased to $3,500,000 per year.

  • IOOS application and product development for regional stakeholders.

  • $100,000 to $500,000 per year for up to 3 years.

  • Data management and communication by local data network nodes.

  • $100,000 to $300,000 per year for up to 3 years.

U.S. IOOS

Regional Associations


  • FY2007 DevelopmentRegional Integrated Ocean Observing System Development

  • Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (RCOOS) development guidance:

  • Demonstrate the approach and benefits of integration at the

  • scale of the Regional Association.

  • Implement an end-to-end RCOOS that addresses regional needs.

  • Further the development of RCOOSs through integration and

  • operation of regional observing system assets.

  • Any existing or proposed assets would be deployed and managed

  • as part of a regional deployment design.

  • Proposals should address the following:

  • (a) regional deployment, operation and maintenance of sensors

  • and platforms;

  • (b) regional integration of data streams, quality assurance

  • procedures, and data delivery; and

  • (c) generation of regional products, including data products and

  • model output, that facilitates the development of value added

  • products for identified users.
