Establish a framework for the U.S. operational oceanography enterprise, enabling the earth system science value chain from observation to decision-making and societal benefit.


Operational oceanography within the U.S. needs to coalesce and evolve into a robust sustained national enterprise that knits together global, regional, and local components.
