SECOORA is proud to announce the first winner of the Vembu Subramanian Ocean Scholar Award, Laura McGee from North Carolina State University. The award is allowing her to present her research, Determining Hurricane-Induced CO2 Flux in the South Atlantic Bight, at two conferences.
"The Vembu Subramanian Ocean Scholars Award will give me the opportunity to network with the ocean science community to build collaborations and will allow me to widely distribute my research results. This research will use cutting-edge data analysis techniques to better understand the role that tropical cyclones play in air-sea CO2 flux." - Laura McGee, PhD Student at North Carolina State University
SECOORA and Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System (GCOOS) partnered to teach the community about navigation, ports, and ocean observing at the St. Petersburg Science Festival, a two day event that took place October 19-20, 2018, in St. Petersburg, FL.
ROFFS™ has analyzed the ocean conditions directly before and after Florence along the east coast of the United States from northern Florida to Virginia. They focused mainly on the Sea Surface Temperature and Ocean Color/Chlorophyll data.
The Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON) links groups engaged in ocean observation to track changes in the diversity and abundance of life in the sea. Please take your lunch break with SECOORA and join in on the dialogue to advance an integrated system to observe life in the sea.
Presenter: Frank E. Muller-Karger, College of Marine Science, University of South Florida

As Florence is projected to make landfall near the Carolinas, SECOORA Members in North Carolina and their partners are collecting critical data ahead of the storm. The data collected will help monitor storm surge, dune erosion, overwash and more.
Two gliders were deployed in the South Atlantic Bight ahead of Hurricane Florence making her way to the U.S. eastern seaboard. These gliders will gather vital oceanographic information before the potential life-threatening hurricane
NOAA has now certified all 11 Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Regional Associations as Regional Information Coordination Entities. Data coming from the IOOS regions now adheres to common federal collection, storage and management standards. In other words, it can be integrated with other data, and help make "big data" research and development possible.
SECOORA is participating in a survey to better understand the value of the services we provide. This short, 5 minute survey is to help us better serve your ocean observing needs. We value your feedback
