POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

Since 1999, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.

MARACOOS Takes the Ocean's Pulse for Public Benefit

A University of Delaware-led network in the Mid-Atlantic has its finger on the ocean’s “pulse” and is putting that data to use - to save lives, improve flood warnings, protect fish stocks from overfishing while enhancing the fishing experience, save shipping time and fuel costs, and even spawn new businesses. These are just a few of the applications, both real and potential, for the extensive data being gathered by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS).

NOAA and oil companies to share data for the Arctic

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and three global energy companies have agreed to share ocean, coastal and meteorological data for the Arctic. NOAA, Shell Exploration & Production, ConocoPhillips, and Statoil USA E&P Inc. have signed an agreement that calls for sharing scientific data sets for the Arctic, including weather and ocean observations, biological information, and sea ice and sea floor mapping studies, according to a press release from NOAA.
