The Webcams for Coastal Observations and Operational Support (WebCOOS) project is being implemented by SECOORA and its partners with funding from NOAA. The team is developing a webcam coastal observing network for quantitative scientific analysis, public safety, and resource management for coastal municipalities, scientists, and local communities. To accomplish this, standardized data processing and management methodology will be established to provide stakeholders with actionable information from webcam videos. SECOORA is working to transfer this methodology nationwide across all 11 IOOS regional associations.
This project is funded by the NOAA U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System’s (IOOS®) Ocean Technology Transition grant.
