Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.]. Coastal Ocean Observing Systems provides state-of-the-art scientific and technological knowledge in coastal ocean observing systems, along with guidance on establishing, restructuring, and improving similar systems.

The book is intended to help oceanographers understand, identify, and recognize how oceanographic research feeds into the various. With GHOST upgraded, Book and the team took to the Ocean and Coastal Observation Systems Act book to test the teaming concept. A first big decision was location, and the team decided to go to North Carolina.

"Because of the complicated ocean circulation in the area, it’s an interesting place to test our ability to observe and predict the ocean environment,” Book said.

Coastal ocean observing systems (COOS) are necessary for advancing our understanding on the state of the coastal ocean worldwide and its impact on matters of societal importance.
