The ExCom recommends investigating the following pilots:
- A coastal US CODAR pilot - This effort is to
be led by Mike Kosro of OSU. Participating in the effort will be Hankin
(LAS), other US CODAR sites and the developers of CODAR. The
effort will begin on the West coast with OSU data and when that portion
of the project is well in hand will be extended to the other US
CODAR sites. Initally (first year) funds for this project will come
out of the west coast budget.
- An initiative in which NAVOCEANO uses OPeNDAP (a.k.a.
DODS) to facilitate GIS access to its holding - $35K/year was set
aside in the budget for NAVOCEANO. These funds should be used for this
pilot if needed. The main concern with regard to this pilot is that
it takes place in a secure environment. Before proceeding with this
project it must be discussed in detail with John Lever of NAVOCEANO.
- A climatology pilot -
