Program accomplishments...

Funding was provided in FY 2003 to the California Spatial Reference Center, the Louisiana Spatial Reference Center, the States of Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. In addition to these states, grants are planned for FY 2004 to Alabama, and Washington states. Sponsored a meeting of experts to discuss models used in the Prince William Sound Science Center(PWSSC) for a Nowcast-Forcast System (NFS). The proposed project will complete the implementation of a Prince William Sound (PWS) Nowcast-Forecast Information System (PWS NFS) in Prince William Sound. Focus areas are 1) integration and coupling of ongoing modeling efforts at a new and enhanced computing and communications environment at the PWSSC/Oil Spill Recovery Institute (OSRI) in Cordova, Alaska; 2) development of new information products for users in a variety of media including new Internet web pages; and 3) expansion of near real-time observational network elements in support of the model and user requirements. Examples of funded projects are more observation systems and experimentation to test models. The Joint Hydrographic Center has developed several new technologies for ocean mapping and hydrographic surveying that will greatly increase the quality and productivity of hydrographic surveying and ocean mapping in the United States. In particular, new techniques for multibeam sonar data processing will have major positive impacts.
