How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
An ocean modeling program is improving our ability to predict circulation along the U.S. West Coast, dead zones and other coastal ecosystem responses, and storm surges in island environments.
 Strong and strategic collaborations among experts from academia, federal operational centers, and industry have been forged to create a U.S. IOOS Coastal and Ocean Modeling Testbed (COMT). The COMT mission is to accelerate the transition of scientific and technical advances from the coastal and ocean modeling research community to improved oper...
Coastal waters and lowlands of the U.S. are threatened by climate change, sea-level rise, flooding, oxygen depleted “dead zones”, oil spills and unforeseen disasters. With funding from U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®), the Southeast University Research Association (SURA) facilitated strong and strategic collaborations among experts fr...
A national glider network is essential to provide baseline ocean observations to connect the coastal and global ocean, and to address such issues as natural climate variability, ecosystem health, and water quality. The development of gliders is briefly reviewed. Requirements for a national network are presented, and the capabilities of gliders are...
