The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) has launched a new website at http://www.pacioos.org. Its goal is to further PacIOOS’ mission to empower ocean users, decision-makers and stakeholders across the Pacific Islands with accurate and reliable coastal and ocean information, data and services.
The new website provides user-friendly tools and easy access to PacIOOS’ observations of waves, sea surface currents and water quality. Users can choose from a variety of formats to view and explore data, such as interactive graphs and map viewers. A large set of coastal, oceanic and atmospheric forecasts are also available for different parts of the U.S. Pacific Islands region, including forecasts of potential wave inundation, harbor surge, water temperature and wind speed.
