A New Master's Level Certificate in Ocean Observing Systems at Texas A&M University
Abstract:The College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University (TAMU) introduces an exciting new Graduate Certificate in Ocean Observing Systems. The objective of this certificate program is to train a new generation of ocean professionals knowledgeable in the development, design, and implementation of real-time operational oceanographic systems. It is envisioned that the nascent U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System, IOOS, will be akin to the National Weather Service and will be designed to provide real-time oceanographic data, services, and products (http://www.ocean.us). The TAMU graduate program in Ocean Observing Systems is designed to meet the anticipated demand for specifically trained persons with technical and scientific expertise in oceanography and ocean-related technology.
