  3. Update to NOAA’s Strategic Plan • An informed society that uses a comprehensive understanding of the role of the oceans, coasts and atmosphere in the global ecosystem to make the best social and economic decisions • NOAA’s 5-Year Research Plan—new in January 2005 • NOAA’s 20-Year Research Vision—new in January 2005

  4. NOAA’s Mission & Goals • To understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment and manage coastal and marine resources to meet the Nation’s economic, social and environmental needs • Mission Goals: • Protect, restore, and manage the use of coastal and ocean resources through an ecosystem approach to management • Understand climate variability and change to enhance society’s ability to plan and respond • Serve society’s needs for weather and water information • Support the Nation’s commerce with information for safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transportation • Provide critical support for NOAA’s mission

  19. NOAA Organizational Structure

  20. NOAA Organizational Structure

  21. SES Summit IIHighlights • Transparency of Mission • Improved Internal Practices • NOAA Management actively listens to employees, incorporates feedback into practices • Employees understand & endorse the mission – ensures long-term care & feeding of NOAA • Improved External Practices • External partners have stake in the outcome and drive internal administrative requirements • Enhance connections to constituents to ensure we are giving our “customers” what they want • Buy-in from community/stakeholders puts Average Joe in NOAA’s Corner

  22. SES Summit IIIntegration: Moving Forward Under Fiscal Restraint • Re-purpose existing systems and capitalize on new developments, technologies, external partners • Linkages between programs facilitate economic & scientific efficiencies • NOAA products and services integrate and meet society’s increasingly complex needs • Partnering with other federal, state, local agencies advance domestic and international agendas–key opportunities on the horizon to work closely with DoE, DHS

  23. SES Summit IICommunication • How well we talk to each other is a key barometer of how well NOAA is functioning. • Effective Managers know what to put into the hands of employees so there can then be clarity at all levels

  24. Ocean Commission ReportAdministration’s Response to the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy

  25. Ocean Commission ReportExecutive Order: Establishment ofCommittee on Ocean Policy • Chaired by chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality • Cabinet level membership • Will advise President and heads of agencies on policies concerning ocean-related matters • Responsibilities: • Ocean science and technology • Ocean literacy and education • Ocean resource management

  26. Ocean Action PlanKey Recommendations • Build a Global Earth Observation Network • include Integrated Ocean Observation • Work with Regional Fisheries Councils to promote greater use of market based system for fisheries management • Implement Coral Reef Local Action Strategies • Seek passage of NOAA Organic Act • Establishes NOAA within the Department of Commerce

  27. Earth Observation Summit III • February 16: Brussels, Belgium • Agreement on Implementation Plan and Resolution • Set up new GEO Structure and Secretariat • WMO offer to host • Near-term Opportunities Include: • Data Management System for Earth Observations • Improved Observations for Disaster Warnings • Global Land Observing System

  28. What is GEOSS?Global Earth Observing System of Systems End To End System

  29. What is GEOSS?Global Earth Observing System of Systems • GEOSS is a distributed system of systems built on current international cooperation efforts among existing Earth observing and processing systems • GEOSS is • Comprehensive—observations and products from all components • Coordinated—leverages contributing members resources • Sustained—by will and capacity of all members • GEOSS enables the collection and distribution of accurate, reliable Earth Observation data, information, products, and services to both suppliers and consumers worldwide—an end-to-end process

  30. Why GEOSS?Global Earth Observing System of Systems Terrestrial, Coastal & Marine Ecosystems Water Resources Energy Resources Natural & Human Induced Disasters Sustainable Agriculture & Desertification Human Health & Well-Being Biodiversity Climate Variability & Change Weather Information, Forecasting & Warning

  31. NOAA’s Role in GEOSS • NOAA: Where Science Creates Value • Earth observations… • Are at the core of NOAA’s mission • Support virtually every activity we perform • NOAA has… • Observing capabilities being advanced through scientific and technological research • A broad scope of domestic and international partnerships • Commitment to transform research into useful, operational information

  32. Pacific Tsunami Warning System • Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific (ICG/ITSU) was established in 1968 and presently has 26 member states.

  33. U.S. Plan For An Improved Tsunami Monitoring System • $37.5M over next 2 years • Enable enhanced monitoring, detection, warning & communications throughout • Advanced technology DART buoys • Nearly 100% coverage for U.S. coastal tsunami • Expanded monitoring capability throughout Pacific & Caribbean basins • Part of future global observation & global tsunami warning systems
