Envisioning the Future of the NOAA Data Enterprise

September 12-16, 2022


Thank you for your interest in the 2022 NOAA EDMW. The Workshop is over, but we’re excited to announce that the session recordings are available! Just click on a session, then under the Description section click on the "Session Recording Here" link. Be patient, it can take up to 20-30 seconds for the video to display.

The Workshop featured a diverse group of sessions and presentations that cover NOAA’s strategic goals. In addition, ‘Workshop Wednesday’ provided multiple opportunities to learn about techniques, tools, and experiences that help us achieve our data and strategic goals.

We would like to especially thank everyone who submitted sessions and abstracts! This workshop wouldn’t be possible without the great submissions from our colleagues!

The vision for the New Blue Economy is an economy that includes equitable, transparent, high-tech, data-based tools and services to empower, ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes decision-making that advances safety, security, prosperity, and a healthy and sustainable marine environment. To foster the transition to a more sustainable and knowledge-based blue economy, NOAA will provide data, information, and services that will catalyze American competitiveness, accelerate growth of ocean industries and science, and facilitate technology advancements for coastal and marine solutions to climate challenges.

This session will host discussions of NOAA’s future in ocean and coastal data and services, as well as highlight partnerships with other government organizations (Federal, State, Local, and Tribal), academia, non-profits, and the private sector that feature the use of NOAA’s ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes data to sustainably create equitable opportunity, accelerate economic growth, and find solutions to pressing societal needs through improved data and data access.
