Other ways to access OOI Data

A number of other facilities have integrated OOI data into their servers. The following is a list of others ways you might access OOI data, in addition to OOI’s data portal:

Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) serves OOI data from the OOI Coastal Endurance Oregon and Washington Line Surface Moorings through its NANOOS Visualization System. NANOOS also serves data from the National Science Foundation’s Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Data Buoy Center, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Coastal Data Information Program.

Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) hosts data from the OOI Regional Cabled Array broadband and short-period seismometers, low frequency hydrophones, and bottom pressure sensors. To search for OOI data on IRIS, use the network designator “OO” or select a station on the map provided.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) Ocean Station Papa Surface Mooring is co-located with the OOI Global Station Papa Apex Profiler Mooring. Data from NOAA’s PMEL station is available for download here.

Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Glider Data Assembly Center (DAC) hosts OOI’s glider data. As new OOI gliders are deployed,real-time data are added to the DAC. Older glider data are available for download and glider tracks can be visualized using the map viewer.


OOI hosts workshops to help encourage integration of OOI data into scientific research and use in the classroom. Information about past and upcoming workshops can be found here.

Members of the oceanographic community are also encouraged to host workshops about the OOI or how to use its data. While such community workshops are not funded by the OOI, we are happy to support them by helping to increase awareness of plans and possibly provide OOI data experts. If you are planning such a workshop, please reach out to so we can help maximize its success and help spread the word.
