A network of national observatories is being coordinated to pro- vide ocean data for the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS, Many observatories are surface or sea- ß oor moorings with sensor arrays. Where moorings are cabled to shore for power, a few observatories include buoyancy gliders as observing system components. Discussions have been underway to further develop Inte- grated Ocean Observing Systems (IOOS) which also include propeller-driven autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), autonomous surface vessels (ASVs), and autonomous or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
