The Alaska Ocean Observing System works with agencies and other organizations to provide coastal and ocean data and information products to the public through collaborative networks and our online Ocean Data Explorer portal.

Distinguishing Characteristics of the Alaska region:

  • Expanding and sustaining observations in a largely under-instrumented area.
  • Developing customized products and services to meet the specialized needs of Alaska mariners and subsistence users.
  • Serving as a testbed for the research and development of hardened, low-power observing technologies for nationwide use.
