Abstract

The Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction (SCOOP – http://scoop.sura.org) program is a SURA Coastal Research initiative that is deploying cutting edge IT to advance the science of environmental prediction and hazard planning for our nation’s coasts. SCOOP is intended as a working prototype infrastructure to serve as a model for a distributed Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) in the southeastern region (Bogden and Graves 2005). IOOS is a national initiative to create a new system for collecting and disseminating information about the oceans. The system will support a variety of practical applications, along with enabling research.
