NERACOOS Membership

Why should I become a member? 

NERACOOS is the trusted source of ocean and weather information from Long Island Sound to the Gulf of Maine. We are a network of observers, modelers, forecasters, data managers, tool developers, and interested organizations and individuals. NERACOOS membership is a diverse mix of those interested in obtaining, using and sustaining the best ocean and weather information in the IOOS northeast region. 

Why does NERACOOS need my membership?

We need your help to ensure that this critical information is sustained and gets to the people who need it.  The federal funds we receive provide critical base support, but we need help to keep the system operating and improving. With your membership we will be able to:

•    Maintain and repair infrastructure, ensuring observations and forecasts continue

•    Develop new tools to make it easier for people to access and understand the information, and

•    Advocate for the national IOOS program to continue base support.
