Co-Chairs: Meredith Westington, Mashkoor Malik, Jennifer Jencks


This session will introduce the national ocean mapping, exploration, and characterization (MEC) strategy, led by NOAA, resulting from the 2019 Presidential Memorandum on Ocean Mapping of the United States Exclusive Economic Zone and the Shoreline and Nearshore of Alaska. This set-up discussions for how decisions about conducting MEC activities are informed by data, including remote sensing (e.g. bathymetry, backscatter, water column) and in-situ observations (e.g.imagery, samples, eDNA). In addition, the session will discuss the current ingest, discovery and access of these data, anticipated data volumes, and future end-to-end data management needs to enable U.S. MEC goals over the next 10 years. Participants will come away with an understanding of the big picture efforts across NOAA to address the goals of the ocean mapping, exploration, and characterization strategy.
