Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board Town Hall

Session ID#: 91865

Session Description:
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI, is a National Science Foundation-supported array of moorings and cabled platforms in a variety of locations in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.  OOI was originally configured to support a broad suite of science objectives spanning the ocean sciences.  Data are freely available from the OOI data portal. With more than 5 years of data now online from many of the OOI sensor systems, new science is emerging, and OOI data are poised to support further research and discovery.  The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board (OOIFB, will host this town hall, which will include updates on the OOI facility, an opportunity to learn about research using OOI data through a series of lightning talks, and a chance to provide input and recommendations to the OOIFB regarding the OOI.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions of the OOIFB and NSF representatives.  The town hall is aimed at researchers who are now using or are considering using OOI data, scientists interested in adding instrumentation to the OOI infrastructure, and educators at all levels interested in the OOI.
