Science Workshops


OOI Coastal Arrays Community Workshop

Date and Time: January 5-7 2016
Location: National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA
The goal of the OOI Coastal Arrays Workshop is to introduce the research community to the science capabilities of the coastal arrays, the data access protocols, and to identify additional cyber-infrastructure (CI) applications. The workshop will also review the key scientific questions that motivated the building of the observatories. Participants will be provided with a hands-on opportunity to explore the capabilities offered by the CI to access OOI data. NSF Program Officers will attend and offer guidance on the use of OOI assets. Potential users will be provided with the information required to plan research projects that utilize the observational capabilities of the coastal arrays.
