AOOS is hosting a meeting with NOAA Deputy Undersecretary Monica Medina on Tuesday, June 14 at from 8-10 am at our conference room in Anchorage (1007 W Third Ave, Suite 100). You are invited to join us in our discussions.
The focus will be: Taking the Pulse of Alaska’s Oceans and Coast
Meet with AOOS staff, board members (including AK Sea Grant, ASLC, and NPRB) and stakeholders regarding:
- Current status of ocean observing initiatives in Alaska
- Integrating data from multiple sectors (federal, state, NGO, private industry) and from multiple disciples (physical, chemical, biological, deep water, coastal) to support decision-making
- How Alaska can be an example of a coordinated approach of using NOAA line offices, other federal agencies, NOAA externals (AOOS, ACCAP, SeaGrant), state agencies and stakeholders such as industry and NGOs to tackle major problems/issues (e.g., oil and gas in the Arctic, increased marine shipping in Arctic, data integration)
