Surface In-Situ Networks
The overarching goal of OrCOOS is to establish and maintain an observing system to preserve and enhance the safe and sustained use of Oregon’s coastal ocean. OrCOOS expects to achieve this goal by facilitating the integration of a wide variety of near real-time ocean observing and modeling systems. Examples of such systems include moorings, undersea autonomous vehicles, a land-based surface current mapping and wave detection radar array, and “nowcast” and “forecast” fields of sea surface currents and temperature derived from an ocean circulation model. The output of these systems is available at orcoos.org.
