2024 NSF OOI Community Workshop: Pioneer MAB Array

September 10-12, 2024
Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA


The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board (OOIFB) will host a U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Ocean Observatories Initiative (NSF OOI) Community Workshop focused on science and education initiatives that can be addressed using data from the NSF OOI Pioneer Array, which is planed to be relocated to the Southern Mid-Atlantic Bight (MAB). The event will bring together a diversity of scientists, resource managers, educators, and other stakeholders to learn about the capabilities of the Pioneer MAB Array and the cutting-edge research that can be done in this new location. The workshop also will provide a forum to facilitate cross-network collaborations, identify strategies for better engaging current and future users of NSF OOI, and foster the research and proposal development process. NSF OOI Program team members and NSF representatives will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on NSF OOI operations.
