Over the past decade, regional ocean observing systems have been established along nearly the entirety of the U.S. coastlines, forming a major component of the national Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). Observations from these systems provide information to support decision making by governmental agencies and commercial interprises, such as shipping and fishing.
