NANOOS provides critical information to federal, state and local partners to support Washington and Oregon in dealing with and controlling marine debris. NANOOS is engaged with regional marine debris tracking efforts by supporting ocean surface current mapping and surface current modeling efforts, participating in regional coordination projects, and discussions to identify objectives and tasks that take advantage of NANOOS's specific strengths.
NANOOS has become an important regional partner through its distinct role coordinating marine monitoring, providing data access through innovative products and services, and maintaining outreach with stakeholders and resource managers.
