Continued Funding for PacIOOS


Continued Funding for PacIOOS

PacIOOS received $2.65 million in competitive grant funding in its third year of a five-year cooperative agreement with the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS will build on existing efforts to sustain and enhance ocean observations and further develop its suite of coastal, ocean, and atmospheric forecasts. Accurate, reliable, and easily accessible data provide numerous stakeholders with valuable information to make informed and safe decisions. PacIOOS data users and partners include local, state, and federal agencies, recreational and commercial ocean users, industry, non-profits, and many more.

Based within the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, PacIOOS is one of 11 regional associations across the nation that make up the non-federal component of IOOS.
