On May 2, 2017, the OOI put out a community call for manuscript ideas for an OOI Special Issue of Oceanography Magazine. The response from the community was overwhelming and immediate. From these ideas, a subset was selected to create compilation of articles highlighting scientific discoveries across arrays as well as educational and scientific engagement opportunities.
“What follows in the pages of this special issue of Oceanography brings readers, in many cases, the results of the first scientific studies using the diverse and unique data sets collected from the OOI’s Coastal, Global, and Cabled Arrays. The articles and sidebars highlight unique features of this facility, focusing on key OOI data and science themes, community developed tools, and ways that OOI data can provide the environmental and observational context for initializing and designing novel research and technologies. The articles examine ocean processes across multiple dimensions, revealing previously difficult-to-capture phenomena on temporal scales from seconds to years and spatial scales from centimeters to kilometers.”
(Excerpt from the Guest Editor Introduction).
The Guest Editor Team for the Special Issue included Tim Cowles, Oregon State University (emeritus), Leslie Smith, Consortium for Ocean Leadership, Bob Vaillancourt, Millersville University, and Subbarao Yelisetti, Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
