SCCOOS Stations

SCCOOS brings together coastal observations in the Southern California Bight to provide information necessary to address issues in climate change, ecosystem preservation and management, coastal water quality, maritime operations, coastal hazards and national security. As a science-based decision support system, SCCOOS works interactively with local, state and federal agencies, resource managers, industry, policy makers, educators, scientists and the general public to provide data, models and products that advance our understanding of the current and future state of our coastal and global environment.

The objective of SCCOOS Nearshore Observations is to extend CalCOFI time series to the nearshore. Nearshore observations consist of 9 stations at the ends and interspersed with current CalCOFI lines on the 20 m isobath with a standard set of CalCOFI observations.
