SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The IOOS is intended to be a ‘‘user-driven’’ integrated network that includes ocean observatories, data telemetry, data management and communications, systems and data analysis and modeling tools that reliably and continuously provide the data and information that is required to achieve the seven IOOS societal goals: (1) Improve predictions of climate change and weather and their effects on coastal communities and the nation; (2) Improve the safety and efficiency of marine operations; (3) More effectively mitigate the effects of natural hazard; (4) Improve national and homeland security; (5) Reduce public health risks; (6) More effectively protect and restore healthy coastal marine ecosystems; and (7) Enable the sustained use of marine resources. The IOOS is intended to become a national asset. IOOS may be characterized as a ‘‘network centric, system-of-systems’’. This large scale network will incorporate oceanographic, meteorological and atmospheric sensors offshore and onshore, sub sea and at sea surface, the equipment and telemetry methods to transmit this data first to information system (IS) that includes the hardware, software, middleware and storage capacity to collect, analyze, archive, distribute and disseminate the IOOS data. It is intended that portals will be developed to allow contributors around the nation to input their data and that the data will be made available through graphical user interfaces (GUIs) in order that users in the private sector, academia and the government may access it. It is the goal of Ocean.US to completely characterize all components required to address these goals and solicit from industry input and best commercial practices that will help to achieve them.
