The North Carolina Coastal Ocean Observing System. NCCOOS Observing Platforms One of the primary goals of NCCOOS is to develop a robust set of platforms that observe the ocean and the atmosphere in near real-time. The value of collecting ocean data is nearly as infinite as the ocean is vast. Capturing marine data is critical for improved marine resource management, better tracking and forecasting of tropical storms and ocean temperature changes, and the advanced monitoring of fish stocks that nourish entire communities. Marine research has been growing in financial value.

Start studying Oceanography - Ch Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. Coastal zone ocean observing techniques are critical because that is where _____. Little is known about ancient ocean exploration because of all EXCEPT for _____. Ancient explorers seldom returned. Timothy Shank is a deep-sea biologist, Associate Scientist in the Biology Department, and former Director of the Ocean Exploration Institute at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. He is known for his research on the ecology and evolution of fauna in deep-ocean hydrothermal, seamount, canyon and deep trench systems.

Most of the ocean is unexplored — about 95 percent of this underwater realm is unseen by human eyes. The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is the largest living organism on Earth and can be seen from the moon. The ocean contains more than 96 percent of the Earth’s water. The U.S. shoreline is more t miles long. Indeed, the multi- national effort involved in installing and operating observation systems for ocean exploration, at coastal or open-ocean priority sites, might prove essential in creating the required synergies among interested nations to get a viable international ocean exploration program started and fully opera- tional.

U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System East-West Highway 2nd Floor Silver Spring, MD () Semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) are a passive sampling device used to monitor trace levels of organic contaminants. When placed in an aquatic environment, SPMDs accumulate hydrophobic (water-“hating,” fat-“loving”) organic compounds, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and organochlorine pesticides from the surrounding waters.
