September 2015, IOOS Association (IA) held their Annual Meeting in St. Petersburg, FL at the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Directors from all eleven Regional Associations, staff from the US IOOS Program Office and IA Board Members discussed filling critical observing gaps and IOOS activities in the Gulf of Mexico.
SECOORA and GCOOS co-hosted the meeting and teamed together to do a tour of the surrounding facilities, including a presentation from Katherine Hubbard (Research Scientist at FWRI) on Harmful Algal Bloom observations and forecasting, a tour of the University of South Florida College of Marine Science's Coastal Ocean Monitoring and Prediction Systems buoy program and USF CMS glider lab.
