Summary

One of the major challenges in understanding changes in coastal processes in western Alaska is the lack of measured ocean data in the region. ​This project leverages existing human resources, and physical and computational infrastructure to collect and disseminate oceanographic observations in the Bering Sea. From instrument restoration, transport and deployment, through data streaming, recovery and dissemination, this project considers the end to end supports necessary to gather, promote, and serve oceanographic data along Alaska’s Western coast. Real‐time sea‐state conditions directly benefit emergency managers and local communities, particularly in dealing with small craft hazards and predicting storm surges and coastal erosion. [...]

Project Extension

parts
typeShort Project Description
valueThis project will support data collection in the Bering Sea from a Triaxys oceanographic wave buoy to supplement existing stationary sensors. Wave buoy data has numerous applications for science and industry and is a primary tool for providing real-time data about water movement towards shore.
