Call for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to Advance Ocean Observing in California

The Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS) and Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS) are developing 5-year work plans in response to the US Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) FY 2020 Notice of Federal Opportunity. This award will cover the 5-year period, June 1, 2021, through May 31, 2026, and will sustain critical observing, modeling, information products, and engagement activities while also providing opportunities to add new, multidisciplinary projects to the system.

Video Features OA Monitoring Partnership

The New York Times, as part of the "California Matters" series, posted a video exploring our science-industry partnership to monitor ocean acidification and water quality in Tomales Bay.  The video follows host Mark Bitmann as he visits with Tessa Hill (UC Davis) and Hog Island Oyster Company co-owner Terry Sawyer to discuss ocean observing assets deployed at the oyster farm.  These instruments are being used to track water conditions that are important to both research science and the shellfish companies in the area.

Underwater Glider Observations - Trinidad Head, California


CeNCOOS announces the start of a new project to continuously monitor subsurface ocean conditions along a 300km track line off Trinidad Head. These measurements fill an important gap in oceanographic observations between Newport, OR, and Monterey Bay, CA; an area that has been identified in many California Current plans as a key sampling location.
