The workshop presented to the ocean research community the conceptual design of the global, regional and coastal ocean research observatory network to be implemented under the ORION Program. The conceptual design was developed based on an extensive effort by ORION’s Project Office and scientific, technical and engineering advisory committees, using the ideas submitted in the Request for Assistance Proposals and previous workshop reports.

Participants engaged in intensive component/scale (global, regional and coastal) and cross-scale thematic breakout group discussions to evaluate the conceptual design and its implementation. This effort will lead to the realization of the Ocean Observatories Initiative, ORION’s ambitious plan to develop and deploy observing infrastructure for research and education purposes. We strongly encourage participation in implementing these community facilities.
