Board of Governors

With the complex interactions of the Southern California Bight’s (SCB) competing ocean uses in mind, SCCOOS has evolved into a collaborative, sustainable observing system with a broad base of stakeholders and partners. The SCCOOS governance structure is based on a Memorandum of Understanding that established a consortium of institutions and organizations to fulfill SCCOOS objectives.

The BOG makes all corporate-like decisions concerning management and operations with commitment to the SCCOOS mission and program longevity. The Executive Steering Committee (ESC) advises the BOG on technical matters, funding distribution, and strategic planning. The Chairs of the BOG and ESC also work closely with the SCCOOS program staff.
