ATIcourses offer courses in Applied Oceanography and Underwater Acoustics. This announcement should interest some of our readers. Resources The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) has begun establishing a Catalog that will help people find ocean data. The IOOS vision is that users will be able to find the information they want, for the location and time period of interest, from all available IOOS partners without having to know in advance what partners operate the actual observing systems and data servers. The functionality is still somewhat basic, and not every IOOS observing platform is presently included. IOOS welcomes comments and problem reports; please send them to ioos.catalog@noaa.gov NOAA will solicit proposals for competitive funding for Regional Ocean Partnership activities that include or emphasize regional Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning efforts. This competition will focus on advancing effective coastal and ocean management through regional ocean governance and the goals for national ocean policy set out in the July 2010 Final Recommendations of the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force. Total anticipated funding is approximately $20,000,000 and is subject to the availability of FY 2011 appropriations. Details on eligibility, deadlines and proposal requirements are available at http://www.csc.noaa.gov/funding/. The anticipated number of awards ranges from twelve (12) to thirty (30), and will be adjusted based on available funding. The document can be read here. Source info@macoora.org
