Book Description :

This manual describes the wide range of electromechanical, electrochemical and electro-optical transducers at the heart of current field-deployable ocean observing instruments. Their modes of operation, precision and accuracy are discussed in detail. Observing platforms ranging from the traditional to the most recently developed are described, as are the challenges of integrating instrument suits to individual platforms. Technical approaches are discussed to address environmental constraints on instrument and platform operation such as power sources, corrosion, biofouling and mechanical abrasion. Particular attention is also given to data generated by the networks of observing platforms that are typically integrated into value-added data visualization products, including numerical simulations or models. Readers will learn about acceptable data formats and representative model products. The last section of the book is devoted to the challenges of planning, deploying and maintaining coastal ocean observing systems. Readers will discover practical applications of ocean observations in diverse fields including natural resource conservation, commerce and recreation, safety and security, and climate change resiliency and adaptation. This volume will appeal to ocean engineers, oceanographers, commercial and recreational ocean data users, observing systems operators, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the field of ocean observing.

Book Description :

"In August 2001, NOAA Ocean Service (NOS) Acting Assistant Administrator Margaret Davidson directed an NOS team to provide an assessment of its current operational observational/monitoring systems and its contribution to a national Integrated Sustained Ocean Observing System (IOOS). The charge directed NOS to first develop an inventory of its existing observing systems, describing the purpose, character and scope of each system with respect to customers, observing platforms, data outputs, availability and delivery, and funding profiles. NOS programs would then be evaluated as IOOS 'National Backbone' elements--i.e., observing systems that provide routine measurements of core variables and are supported by automated data delivery systems. This process and its preliminary findings provided input to the Ocean.US national workshop (March 2002) and helped support new efforts to implement a NOAA coastal observing system as requested by VADM Lautenbacher (US Navy Ret.)"--Executive summary (p. 2).

Book Description :

The long-term goal supported by this project is the development and sustained support of coastal ocean observing systems for the waters of the United States. The authors will first produce regional "inventories" of ocean observation user sectors, including information about the physical and economic scale of their activities, how products from improved ocean observation might be incorporated into their decisions, and a rough estimate of the potential value of improved decisions. Once the inventories are complete, they will select sectors with significant expected benefits for more detailed analysis.

Book Description :

The Carolinas RCOOS is a sub-regional component of NOAA's Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). It was formally established by an award from 2007 IOOS funding, which supported the integration of two existing sub-regional programs in the southeast: the University of South Carolina (USC)-based Carolinas Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction System (Caro-COOPS) and the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UMCW)'s Coastal Ocean Research and Monitoring Program (CORMP). These programs had been successful in developing elements of end-to-end systems, including deployment and maintenance of observing systems, data management/analyses, model development, and outreach and partnership activities. Real time data on ocean and atmospheric conditions are transmitted from offshore buoys and pier-mounted stations, and additional non-real time data, periodic water quality data, and AUV data are also incorporated in the data management system. The transition to the Carolinas RCOOS involved elimination of some observing sites; significant increases in other observing capabilities; identification of new user applications for development; and incorporation of new partners. This successful integration of sub-regional programs has illustrated how close partnering and sharing of resources and capabilities can not only enable broader regional coverage, but can also achieve valuable operational efficiencies and enhanced potential for application development.

Book Description :

In this publication, [authors] focused on five important activities in The Gulf of Maine: maritime commerce, commercial fishing, recreational fishing and boating, search and rescue, and pollution management, specifically oil spill management. For each area, the sources of benefits were defined and estimates were made of the size of the activity in the region from which benefits may be derived. The results of their analysis suggests strongly that the benefits from a regional ocean observing system in the Gulf of Maine will exceed its costs, although more precise measurement is required before the actual magnitude of benefits can be estimated.

Book Description :

In this report we describe a compact, easily deployed, moored system for oceanographic and meteorological observations in the coastal ocean. The system consists of a surface and subsurface mooring pair deployed adjacent to one another. Compared to a single catenary surface mooring, this arrangement allows the entire water column to be instrumented. All of the instruments in the system log high resolution time series data. Additionally, the mooring line instruments periodically report averaged data to the buoys via inductive modems. On the subsurface mooring, this averaged data is sent to the surface buoy using an acoustic modem. Inductively coupled mooring line instrumentation includes conductivity, temperature, and pressure sensors, acoustic current meters, and optical backscattering and absorption sensors. In addition to mooring line instruments, the surface buoy collects averaged data from meteorological sensors, including wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, relative humidity, air temperature, precipitation, longwave and shortwave radiation, sea surface temperature and conductivity, and wave height and period. Data from both mooring lines and from the surface meteorological sensors is telemetered to shore via line-of-sight radio and satellite. The entire system, including buoys, moorings, instruments, launch and recovery gear, telemetry receive, and data processing facilities can be packed into a single 20 foot shipping container. The system was successfully deployed to provide environmental monitoring for Kernel Blitz 2001, a U.S. Navy fleet exercise off southern California. Results from the deployment are presented.

Book Description :

The objective of this report was to identify and quantify the expected economic benefits of sustained coastal ocean observing systems in the gulf coast region. To date, given that the benefits of COOS have not been quantified and perfect information is not available, our study made an assumption that for each economic activity, that enhanced forecasts through COOS would result in a 1% savings for that particular economic activity. Economic benefits were separated in three categories: private sector activities, non-market activities, and public sector activities. Lastly, the analysis aggregated benefits across sectors to yield total systems benefits. The ultimate end goal of this project will be to aggregate economic benefits and costs for all the regions (to be performed by NOAA and ONR), as an effort to calculate a benefit cost ratio for COOS in the United States.

Book Description :

The proliferation of harmful phytoplankton in marine ecosystems can cause massive fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins, impact local and regional economies and dramatically affect ecological balance. Real-time observations are essential for effective short-term operational forecasting, but observation and modelling systems are still being developed. This volume provides guidance for developing real-time and near real-time sensing systems for observing and predicting plankton dynamics, including harmful algal blooms, in coastal waters. The underlying theory is explained and current trends in research and monitoring are discussed.Topics covered include: coastal ecosystems and dynamics of harmful algal blooms; theory and practical applications of in situ and remotely sensed optical detection of microalgal distributions and composition; theory and practical applications of in situ biological and chemical sensors for targeted species and toxin detection; integrated observing systems and platforms for detection; diagnostic and predictive modelling of ecosystems and harmful algal blooms, including data assimilation techniques; observational needs for the public and government; and future directions for research and operations.
