COAPS participates in the following research centers and consortia:




Deep-C Comsortium The Deep-C Consortium is conducting a long-term, interdisciplinary study of deep sea to coast connectivity in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.
fcc-logo The Florida Climate Center (Office of the State Climatologist) provides climate data, information, and outreach to the citizens of Florida. It is housed at COAPS.
Florida Climate Institute The Florida Climate Institute is a multi-disciplinary network of national and international research and public organizations, scientists, and individuals concerned with achieving a better understanding of climate variability and change.
HYCOM Consortium The HYCOM consortium is a multi-institutional effort sponsored by the National Ocean Partnership Program, as part of the U. S. Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment, to develop and evaluate a data-assimilative hybrid isopycnal-sigma-pressure (generalized) coordinate ocean model (called HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model or HYCOM).
iovwst-logo The International Ocean Vector Winds Science Team (IOVWST) leads and coordinates science activities about ocean surface vector winds, interacting with many data assimilation efforts for weather forecasting and climate, and provides input into many international committees contributing to the earth observing system.
Northern Gulf Institute The Northern Gulf Institute, a National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration Cooperative Institute, develops, operates, and maintains an increasingly integrated research and transition program focused on filling priority gaps and reducing limitations in current Northern Gulf of Mexico awareness, understanding and decision support.
Research Vessel Surface Meteorology Data Center The Research Vessel Surface Meteorology Data Center collects, quality-controls, archives, and distributes surface meteorological observations from research vessels operated by the United States and the international community. It is housed at COAPS.
SAMOS Initiative The Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System initiative provides routine access to accurate, high-quality marine meteorological and near-surface oceanographic observations from research vessels and select voluntary observing ships. It is housed at COAPS.
