Advisory Panel: North Pacific Coastal Ocean Observing Systems
Terms of Reference
  1. Develop and advise about best practices for coastal ocean observing systems (examples of topics to be considered include: observing platforms, sensors and sensor calibration, data quality control, user interfaces to data and information products, data delivery to users, data archiving);
  2. Convene workshops/sessions to engage those involved in coastal ocean observing systems from around the North Pacific;
  3. Advise on linkages between coastal ocean observing systems and both PICES activities (e.g., FUTURE Science Program, North Pacific Ecosystem Status Report) and open-ocean observatories (e.g., Argo).
  4. Review the PICES Data Inventory and identify data and/or data products developed under the direction of the AP-NPCOOS not currently recorded in the Data Inventory and inform MONITOR and TCODE, the TCODE Chair and the Secretariat
