An Overview of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)...

The National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) will be the U.S. forum for integrating elements of a sustained ocean observing and prediction federation called “Ocean.US”. The existence of this integrated, sustained federation will serve all of the above National Needs from the outset and will greatly improve knowledge, products and value-added activities as OCEAN.US matures to full implementation over the next decade. These National Needs are adapted from the reports by Nowlin et al (1999) and Frosch et al (1999). The inspiration, indeed most of the contents, for OCEAN.US stem from these two reports and the many source documents of those reports.
