SECOORA is one of 11 regional coastal observing systems that comprise the NOAA led United States Integrated Ocean Observing System (U.S. IOOS®). IOOS is essentially the weather service for the coastal oceans and Great Lakes, providing the ability to “see” what is happening both above and below the surface and making that information readily available. IOOS includes 17 Federal agencies and a national network of 11 regional observing systems.

One of SECOORA’s main source of funding comes through IOOS’s five-year grant process.  It provides support for continuing and expanding SECOORA observing, modeling and related activities in the southeast.
