Global Earth Observation System of Systems
(GEOSS)
  • 70 Member Countries the European Commission
  • 46 International Organizations
  • A distributed system of systems
  • Improves coordination of strategies and
    observation systems
  • Links all platforms in situ, aircraft, and
    satellite networks
  • Identifies gaps in our global capacity
  • Facilitates exchange of data and information
  • Improves decision-makers abilities to address
    pressing policy issues
  • GOOS is the global ocean component of GEOSS

Integrated Ocean Observing
5
U.S. IOOS Vision
  • Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)
  • IOOS will enable rapid assessments of current
    states of marine and estuarine systems, and the
    timely detection and prediction of changes in
    them, through the continual provision of routine
    and reliable data and information in forms and
    at rates specified by the users.
  • U.S. IOOS is a complex undertaking that is
    dependent on federal, regional, state, local,
    academic, private sector contributions

Example of a regional observing system in
Monterey Bay, CA
Provide the right information, in the right
format, at the right time, to the right people,
to make the right decisions.

NOAAs IOOS Mission
  • Lead the integration of ocean, coastal, and
    Great Lakes observing capabilities, in
    collaboration with Federal and non-federal
    partners, to maximize access to data and
    generation of information products to inform
    decision making and promote social, economic, and
    environmental benefit to our nation and the
    world.

Federal Collaboration to Implement IOOS
  • U.S. Ocean Action Plan
  • Establishes mechanisms for federal coordination
    and governance (COP, ICOSRMI, JSOST, SIMOR, etc.)
  • Identifies goal to build a global earth
    observation network, including integrated oceans
    observation
  • Ocean.US
  • Federal agency coordination through JSOST-IWGOO
    (EPA, USGS, MMS, USACOE, ONR, JCS, NOAA, NSF,
    USCG,MMC, USDA, USARC, FDA, NASA, DOS, DOE, DOT)
  • Development Plan
  • Development Plan Addendum

How NOAA Is Implementing IOOS
WORK PLAN
  • NOAA IOOS Program Office Established
  • Dedicated to administration of NOAAs IOOS
    activities and collaborating with external
    partners
  • NOAA first federal agency to do this
  • Implementing Initial Operating Capability for
    Data Integration
  • Integrate 5 of 20 variables (temp., salinity,
    sea level, surface currents, ocean color)
  • Four data products (hurricane intensity, coastal
    inundation, harmful algae blooms, integrated,
    ecosystem assessments)

9
Where Are We?
  • Formed NOAA IOOS Program
  • Lead and mange NOAAs IOOS efforts Leadership in
    place, now hiring other staff
  • Support external collaboration with partners
  • NOAAs FY08 Budget Request includes IOOS request
  • 14.0 Million (Regional obs., date mgmt.,
    sensors)
  • Completed internal planning for the FY10-14
    timeframe
  • Completed a draft NOAA IOOS Strategic Plan
  • Completed 5 interoperability tests to baseline
    data flows and conditions for our four thematic
    focus areas.
  • Implemented a merit based competition to support
    regional IOOS development (FY07 and FY08)

10
NOAA Funded IOOS National Capacity
  • First U.S. IOOS Development Plan (2006) stresses
    the importance of capitalizing on what is already
    deployed in in-the-water
  • For NOAA this means focusing in integrating data
    from our existing systems (i.e., tide gauges,
    buoys)
  • The regional coastal ocean observation element
    has historically been funded through earmarks to
    NOAA. NOAA is transitioning to a competitive
    model.

U.S. IOOS Capacity California Example
  • State of California taking a leadership role in
    creation of regional observing systems.
  • In 2002 passed 21M in bonds to fund the CA Ocean
    Currents Monitoring Program (COCMP)
  • Pacific Coast Ocean Observing System (PaCOOS) is
    developing an ecological component to IOOS for
    ecosystem based management

(HFR) in CA to monitor surface currents.

IOOS Challenges
  • Technical
  • Not easy to integrate data from many sources
  • Need to provide data in formats and rates that
    are useful for broad array of applications
  • Program
  • IOOS is not owned by 1 agency or entity
  • Difficult to engineer a cohesive and operation
    system with many stakeholders that contribute to
    and use the system
  • Budget
  • Fiscal constraints always an issue (no one agency
    can do it all)
  • Coordinating federal budget requests across
    agencies is not typical and not easy
  • Moving from earmarks to merit based awards

Example of ocean and coastal observation data.

from around the U.S.
13
The Roles of Industry Providing Solutions
  • Successful business can be built upon providing
    innovative solutions to project challenges
  • Program solutions
  • Linking OOI and IOOS
  • Innovative Research and Technology Transfer
  • Technical Solutions
  • Still in period of discovery and face technical
    challenges
  • IT engineering services
  • Commercial applications development
  • Budget
  • NOAA knows industry can help
  • How do we build a cohesive system with exiting
    resources?
  • How can we leverage funded efforts underway in
    the private sector?

14
The Role of Industry National IOOS Perspective
  • Its essential that Industry be fully integrated
    in the planning, implementation, and operation of
    the U.S. IOOS
  • Develop strategies for value-added commercial
    applications and services, technology transfer,
    and operations and maintenance of the national
    IOOS.
  • Consider Industry perspectives through
    representation at Ocean.US and through active
    engagement at industry workshops and forums
  • NOAA encourages the private sector to collaborate
    with regional entities to respond to our
    competitive federal funding announcements.
  • Ask for your help in strategizing and thinking
    about ways to strengthen existing and build new
    connections.

conditions around the world
NOAAs PORTS provides real-time oceanographic
data for 13 ports (6 more this year)
15
IOOS The View from Washington
  • Budget
  • FY08 Administration request includes 14M for
    IOOS
  • 2.5 M for implementation of data mgmt. and
    communications
  • 11.5 M for regional observations
  • FY08 Senate CJS Mark - 47 M
  • 8 M for program development, date mgmt.,
    communications, and grant administration
  • 29 M for competitive regional observation
    systems
  • 10 M for National data mgmt. and comm. Center
  • FY08 House CJS Mark - 14 M (matches Pres.
    Request)
  • Legislation
  • S. 950 report out of Senate Commerce, Science
    and Transportation Committee
  • H.2337 report out of the House Natural Resources
    Committee

16
Summary
  • IOOS is maturing, but more work needed to evolve
    IOOS into a fully operational system.
  • As the U.S. IOOS moves to implementation, the
    potential roles of industry are expected to grow.
  • NOAA encourages the private sector to collaborate
    with regional entities to respond to our
    competitive federal funding announcements.
  • Symposia such as this are vitally important for
    exchanging ideas and translating the best ideas
    into action.
