Abstract:

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.
