SES Summit IIHighlights
  • Transparency of Mission
  • Improved Internal Practices
  • NOAA Management actively listens to employees,
    incorporates feedback into practices
  • Employees understand endorse the mission
    ensures long-term care feeding of NOAA
  • Improved External Practices
  • External partners have stake in the outcome and
    drive internal administrative requirements
  • Enhance connections to constituents to ensure we
    are giving our customers what they want
  • Buy-in from community/stakeholders puts Average
    Joe in NOAAs Corner

17
SES Summit IIIntegration Moving Forward Under
Fiscal Restraint
  • Re-purpose existing systems and capitalize on new
    developments, technologies, external partners
  • Linkages between programs facilitate economic
    scientific efficiencies
  • NOAA products and services integrate and meet
    societys increasingly complex needs
  • Partnering with other federal, state, local
    agencies advance domestic and international
    agendaskey opportunities on the horizon to work
    closely with DoE, DHS

18
SES Summit II Communication
  • How well we talk to each other is a key barometer
    of how well NOAA is functioning.
  • Effective Managers know what to put into the
    hands of employees so there can then be clarity
    at all levels

What is GEOSS?Global Earth Observing System of
Systems
  • GEOSS is a distributed system of systems built on
    current international cooperation efforts among
    existing Earth observing and processing systems
  • GEOSS is
  • Comprehensiveobservations and products from all
    components
  • Coordinatedleverages contributing members
    resources
  • Sustainedby will and capacity of all members
  • GEOSS enables the collection and distribution of
    accurate, reliable Earth Observation data,
    information, products, and services to both
    suppliers and consumers worldwidean end-to-end
    process

23
Why GEOSS?Global Earth Observing System of
Systems
  • GEOSSGlobal System To Meet Societal Needs
  • Interdisciplinary focus
  • Identifies gaps in our global capacity
  • An integrated international system using remote
    sensing in situ systems
  • Facilitates exchange of data and information
  • Foundation for sound decision-making global,
    regional, local level
  • Social, Economic, Science Concerns
  • More than half the worlds population lives
    within 60 km of the shoreline
  • Could rise to 3/4 by the year 2020
  • More than 90 of natural disaster-related deaths
    occur in developing countries
  • 25 of Earths biological productivity an
    estimated 80-90 of global commercial fish catch
    is concentrated in coastal zones
  • Worldwide agricultural benefits of better El Niño
    forecasts are conservatively estimated at
    450-550M/year

  • Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific (ICG/ITSU)
    was established in 1968 and presently has 26
    member states.

27
U.S. Plan For An Improved Tsunami Monitoring
System
  • 37.5M over next 2 years
  • Enable enhanced monitoring, detection, warning
    communications throughout
  • 32 advanced technology DART buoys
  • Nearly 100 coverage for U.S. coastal tsunami
  • Expanded monitoring capability throughout Pacific
    Caribbean basins
