TH35H:
U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System: The Power of Partnership over 20 years and beyond

Session ID#: 92285

Session Description:
The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®) is celebrating 20 years of ocean observing (1999-2019), with a year-long series of activities to reflect on our successes and to look ahead to the future of ocean observing. At this town hall, we will highlight U.S. IOOS and SCCOOS partnerships with stakeholders and partners in Southern California. The panel will discuss water quality and sea level rise issues, coastal resilience, and harmful algal blooms and how IOOS is making a positive impact on these societal issues. The panel will reflect on the successes and challenges that the U.S. IOOS Enterprise faces for each topic area, and propose directions for the next 20 years of ocean observing. We seek engagement with the oceanographic community, including physical, biological, and chemical oceanographers; ocean modelers; and economists and social scientists, to help us to continue to evolve the Enterprise toward improved products and services built upon a legacy of sustained observations.
