Empowering Coastal Indigenous Communities
NANOOS, AOOS, and PacIOOS are collaborating with Sofar Ocean Technologies and coastal Indigenous partners in each region on a community-led ocean observing project funded by the NFS Convergence Accelerator program. Backyard Buoys uses simple and affordable instruments, called "Spotters", to put access to and stewardship of ocean data in the hands of those most affected by climate change on the coast.
