The Organizing Committee of the FY21 CoRP Science Symposium has decided to postpone
this event until late Summer - early Autumn 2022. Due to logistical difficulties implementing
some of the objectives of the meeting – namely to facilitate the building
of community between NESDIS CSCs and CIs, it was decided to delay the meeting
to allow the face to face interaction that is so important to build relationships.
Please stand by for the rescheduling information.

delivering integrated display of remote sensing, in situ,
and model output data over oceans, coastal waterways, and
inland bodies of water. Today's release is the culmination
of nearly two years of work, starting from vision to design, development, and
implementation. OceanView's release follows a rigorous
development and beta testing period beginning this past winter.
