A Strategy to Advance Ocean Observing In Central & Northern California (2020-25)

The Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS) Strategic Plan (2020-2025) outlines our overarching strategies, five-year objectives, and metrics for achievement. The plan was developed by the CeNCOOS Program Office in coordination with our Governing Council and key state and regional partners. In developing the plan we consulted scientific experts, policy makers, managers of marine spaces, our members, and our Joint Strategic Advisory Committee operated with the Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS). Our process illustrates how working collaboratively can enhance our ability to meet a growing range of ocean information priorities.
