  1. Pacific Coast Ocean Observing System (PaCOOS): A Regional Ecosystem Science BoardA Presentation to the NOAA Science Advisory BoardJuly 26, 2006 William W. Fox, Jr., Ph.D. Director

  2. Outline • Purpose • Presentation of Briefing • What is PaCOOS? • Why PaCOOS? • How PaCOOS is governed • How PaCOOS relates to IOOS • How PaCOOS is a Regional Ecosystem Science Board (RESB) • Desired Outcome

  3. Purpose • To provide an overview of PaCOOS and its role in the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) • To obtain SAB’s guidance on PaCOOS as a potential model for meeting the External Ecosystem Task Team’s (eETT) recommendations for Regional Ecosystem Science Board (RESB)

  4. eETT Recommendations • R2,4,6,9,11,15--Establish Regional Ecosystem Science Board to plan, coordinate & execute comprehensive science plans & produce Integrated Ecosystem Assessments. • R10--Standardize data management and archiving protocols among LO’s, RA’s etc. • R7,13--Organize partnerships and Centers of Specialized Expertise with Oversight by Regional Ecosystem Science Board • R1,3,6,8,12,14,16,17--HQ and/or LME-based implementation

  5. What is PaCOOS? • Pacific Coast Ocean Observing System • PaCOOS vision: “Provide Ocean Information for the Sustained Use of the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem Under a Varying Climate” • Collaboration of NOAA LOs and External Partners

  6. PaCOOS Covers CC LME **Regional Ecosystem inland boundaries include the coastal watershed and the inland extent of the diadromous fish habitatsee details athttp://ecosystems.noaa.gov/workshops_&_meetings.htm

  7. Location of NOAA offices adjacent to the California Current LME, by line office. Symbols are size-scaled by number of employees. Boundaries of the large marine ecosystem are given. Substitute for slide 15

  8. Why PaCOOS? • To take advantage of the many huge data sets available for the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) • To integrate data planning, collection, management and assimilation on an LME scale • To support IOOS by serving as the Ecosystem Component of the IOOS National Backbone for the CA Current LME • To enable the IOOS National Backbone for the CA Current • To provide Integrated Ecosystem Assessments & Forecasts

  9. NOAA Data Sets

  10. NOAA- NESDIS Coastwatchhttp://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/coastwatch/CWBrowser.jsp

  11. Monitoring of Harmful Algal Blooms HAB Monitoring NOAA Fisheries NWFSC-State Agencies-Academic Partners Domoic Acid ex (1998)

  12. FWS Marine Bird Surveys DOI Fish & Wildlife Service Marine Bird SurveyInventory of all colonies at infrequent intervals (e.g., every 10-15 years)More intensive monitoring of population parameters of target species at selected colonies

  13. US Geological Survey Stream Gauges

  14. PaCOOS LAS Pacific Coast Ocean Observing System Live Access Servers: work of Jerome King, NOAA SWFSC State, Academic, and NGO partners IOOS Regional Associations Ecosystem approach to the CCS ICOOS Data Integration Grant

  15. Populations Use CC LME • Blank slide

  16. Populations Vary with Physics

  17. PaCOOS to Provide for Integrated Assessments & Forecasts Data Collection Data Data Serving User Assessment (reports) Ocean Data Management Observations & Research Management Decisions Forecast (Models) Feedback arrows: Identify data gaps Set priorities for data collections Start Here PaCOOS Sardine Forecast Development

  18. PaCOOS History • Originated in meeting w/Scripps Institution of Oceanography 2002 • Interim Board of Governors (BoG) 2003 • Meetings of BoG 2003-2005 • BoG Charter & Science plan 2004 • Standing Committees 2005 • Executive Committee 2005

  19. PaCOOS Board of Governors • Academic Members • U. of CA System (SIO) • CA State U. System (Humbolt) • U. of WA • Oregon State U. • NGOs • MBARI • Pt. Reyes Bird Observatory • Regional Associations • NANOOS • CENCOOS • SCCOOS • International • --PICES • Federal Gov. Members • NOAA Fisheries (SW & NWFSC) • Interim co-chairs • NOAA NOS (NMSP, CSC) • NOAA NESDIS • NOAA OAR (PMEL) • DOI (FWS, USGS invited) • State Gov. Members • CA Dept of Fish &Game • OR Dept of Fish & Wildlife • WA Dept of Fish & Wildlife

  20. PaCOOS Standing Committees • Data Management • Inventory, priorities, meet IOOS standards • Ocean Observing • Gaps, technology, standards • Modeling, Analysis and Applications • Plan and guidelines

  21. PaCOOS Executive Committee (Interim) • Jack Barth OSU and NaNOOS • Elizabeth Clarke NOAA Fisheries NWFSC • Russ Davis SIO and SCCOOS • Jonathan Phinney NOAA Fisheries SWFSC • Dolores Wesson SIO - Coordinator

  22. New PaCOOS Investments • New CalCOFI line off Monterey, CA (MBARI) 2003 • Secured SIO CalCOFI Involvement 2003 • IOOS Data Management Investment 2005 • New Asst. Dir. for Ecosystems & PaCOOS Coord. 2005 • New CalCOFI lines: N. CA (HSU) & WA 2006 • New Coastwide Pelagic Survey 2006 • IOOS Data Management, Infrastructure & Integrated Assessment Investments 2006

  23. PaCOOS is a Public-Private Partnership • Success is contingent on: (Garrett Ralls, Cohen & Co.) • Shared Mission (Use of funds statement, business plan) • Reward (Profit, support, recognition) • Meaningful Contribution (resources, innovation, invention) • Trust, Transparency, and Integrity • Persistence in Face of Chaos and Complexity • Means to Restore Harmony (give/take) • Adaptation • Only 10% are successful!

  24. PaCOOS & IOOS • How does PaCOOS fit with IOOS planning?

  26. PaCOOS, an Enabler of the IOOS National Backbone

  27. eETT Recommendations Revisited • R2,4,6,9,11,15--Establish Regional Ecosystem Science Board to plan, coordinate & execute comprehensive science plans & produce Integrated Ecosystem Assessments. --Underway • R10--Standardize data management and archiving protocols among LO’s, RA’s etc. --Underway • R7,13--Organize partnerships and Centers of Specialized Expertise with Oversight by Regional Ecosystem Science Board --Partially Underway • R1,3,6,8,12,14,16,17--HQ and/or LME-based implementation --Have Chosen LME-based consistent with Ecosystem Goal Team

  28. Desired Outcome • SAB provides advice on PaCOOS as a Regional Ecosystem Science Board
