Ehime Maru sank in ~ 600m of water, ~17km south of Diamond Head (Oahu, Hawaii)

Beach Contamination

Marine Mammals, Migratory Birds, Sea Turtles, etc.

Environmental Concerns
noaa or r s mandate
To determine, through the use of oil-plume models, the optimal sea state and wind conditions necessary to avoid beach contaminationNOAA OR&R’s Mandate
buoy locations
Buoy Locations

National Data Center Buoys (NDBC)

Scripps Buoys

summary
Scatterometers provide valuable information in many regions of the world ocean that are sparsely sampled by ships and buoys

Anticipated uses:

Oil spill mitigation

Training and emergency response planning

Summary
nws feedback
“excellent potential for our regional marine workshops”

“Eastern Region would very much like to have this kind of data for our marine program”

“The web site is cool”
