“The Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System”
Lecturer: Biological Oceanographer, Clarissa Anderson
The Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS) – part of the national U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) – works to collect, integrate and deliver coastal and ocean observations in order to improve safety, enhance the economy, and protect the environment. SCCOOS serves a diverse stakeholder community of managers and planners, operational decision makers, scientists, and the general public. Join SCCOOS Executive Director Clarissa Anderson as she describes how SCCOOS technology and observational programs provide information critical to decision making related to climate change, coastal hazards, marine ecosystems, fisheries, water quality and marine operations.
This lecture is part of our 3-part series on “Supporting Climate Change Stakeholders: How Scripps Oceanography and its collaborators provide critical data, tools and analysis that inform decision making in California and the west.”
