Cooperative Institute for Oceanographic Satellite Studies
The overarching goal of CIOSS research is to develop, evaluate, improve and use methods of ocean remote sensing and ocean-atmosphere modeling, in order to increase our understanding of the ocean and atmosphere. This goal encompasses the mutual research interests of OSU/COAS/CIOSS, NOAA/NESDIS and other NOAA line offices in:
1) basic research in ocean, atmosphere and marine ecosystem dynamics;
2) applications of basic research to the management of living and non-living resources within the coastal and open ocean; and
3) contributions to ocean observing and modeling systems through the evaluation of plans for future satellite systems and models.
