A few examples of the products and services developed by GMRI's ODP Group.
Hourly information developed for Gulf of Maine marine operations. Includes wind, wave, visibility, air temperature, water temperature at various depths and more.
The ODP group worked with meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine to prototype a decision-support tool for NERACOOS that predicts coastal storm damage. The tool uses forecasts of water level and waves to predict coastal damage.
The Gulf of Maine Research Institute's (GMRI) Ocean Data Products Group (ODP) is a leader in the development of ocean observing products and services. We deliver ocean observing data products to a variety of users including fishermen, mariners, boaters, coastal managers, scientists, and others.
The ODP team grew out of the merger of GMRI and the Gulf of Maine Ocean Observing System (GoMOOS), a user-driven organization that became a nationally recognized leader in the development of integrated data products for ocean observing. Thousands of users regularly access and download the freely available real-time and historical ocean data from oceandata.gmri.org/data/recent.html and the regional association www.NERACOOS.org.
ODP focuses on delivering value-added analyses and decision-support capabilities and enabling the development of integrated coastal data networks. ODP also acts as a regional integrator of data by bringing together multiple data streams (e.g., Northeastern Regional Association of Coastal Ocean Observing Systems, U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System, U.S. Geological Survey) into integrated user-driven information products and decision-support tools. ODP demonstrates a proven history of innovative and effective partnership with community-led projects to evaluate and implement data standards and data integration strategies (e.g., Open Geospatial Consortium, National Environmental Information Exchange Network).
