- Housed at the University of Hawaii, PacIOOS is one of eleven regional observing programs in the US that are supporting the emergence of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®). Development of PacIOOS is guided through a collaborative governance framework and the program is administered and executed by the University of Hawai'i School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST). With major funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), SOEST, and the State of Hawaii, PacIOOS works to develop the observational, modeling, data management, and outreach components of an end-to-end ocean observing system to generate products that help to ensure a safe, clean, and productive ocean and a resilient coastal zone for the U.S. Pacific Islands.
Initial development of the observing system focused on a pilot project on the island of Oahu, Hawaii known as the Hawaii Ocean Observing System (HiOOS). Development of this observational, modeling, data management, and outreach capability within a limited geographic area generated the foundation from which PacIOOS continues to grow. Over recent years, observing system assets have been deployed beyond the initial pilot project area and now are represented in each PacIOOS jurisdiction.
