SEACOOS and Education

Products and Processes

year one accomplishments
Year One Accomplishments
  • FL COSEE, GOM COSEE and SouthEast COSEE work together!
  • US Commission on Ocean Policy (Chapter 8) supports COSEE and increased funding.
  • COSEE/NSF goal is to increase the interaction between science and education community. SEACOOS is a model.
  • IOOS, COOS and Education Workshop
  • Wave Poster Design
  • 12 SEPORT (SouthEast Portals to Ocean Research for Teachers)

IOOS, COOS and Education

A Workshop Sponsored by

SouthEast COSEE,, SC Sea Grant Consortium and NOAA/Coastal Services Center

Date: March 21-23, 2004

Location: NOAA/CSC, Charleston, SC

Attendees: 63 people from COOS, COSEE, NOAA, NSF, NASA, DLESE, etc.

  • To initiate a network associated COOS/IOOS and the K-16 and informal education effort
  • To develop strategies/recommendations for integrating formal and informal education opportunities into IOOS operations
  • To identify exemplary website components of present and potential application for COOS/IOOS education efforts.

Monday, March 22

  • Presentation: Overview of IOOS Tom Malone,

  • Height and period of surface waves are strongly affected by the wide continental shelf--some 100-115 km (60-70 miles) off SC and GA.
  • Larger, longer period, open ocean waves “feel” the bottom well offshore in this region, reducing the wave energy before reaching shore.
  • Good surfing waves are found where ocean swell hits beaches at the edge of a narrow shelf -- Cape Hatteras, NC.
  • Winter storm winds--40-60 km/h (25-35 miles/h); duration of more than 24 hours; a fetch of 500-1000 km (300-600 miles)-- generate waves of a height of 5 m +(15 ft+) at mid-shelf locations (water depths of 25-30 m, or 80-100 feet) at 50 km ( 30 miles) offshore. The wave period of only 8-12 seconds creates steep-sided waves.
  • Hurricanes form large waves only if they travel slowly (longer duration winds over a given fetch).

During 2003-2004, 28 teachers from the Ocean Sciences Education Leadership Institute partnered with 12 SEPORT institutions to offer 6-hour Ocean Awareness Days.


  • Provide leadership opportunities for teachers
  • Attract local teachers
  • Develop pathways to informal institutions for ocean science research and information
  • Initiate a regional infrastructure for distributing ocean education and build functional COSEE partnerships.
