Surface In-Situ Networks
NERACOOS is a component of the national IOOS. Our mission is to make available information to those who use these waters. We provide weather and ocean data to fishers and commercial shippers determining if conditions are safe for passage and to emergency managers issuing storm warnings. We are also advancing efforts to use these data for water quality monitoring, harmful algal bloom predictions and warnings, and coastal flooding and erosion forecasting systems.
