Accurate ocean information and forecasts are critical for planning, safety at sea, and disaster mitigation along the coast. But today, many communities around the world are unable to access ocean data in a way that is truly useful to enable informed decision making.
Observing Together aims to transform availability and accessibility of ocean data by supporting both new and existing projects from community to national scale.
We will leverage the Global Ocean Observing System’s existing networks and expertise to bring needed observations and forecasts to community users and into global data streams, making every observation count.
The programme will identify user needs and priorities for in-situ ocean observing equipment deployment, provide access to tools and training, and connect observations into global data streams.
