GLIN==> Great Lakes Observing System Industry Day - November 15th in Chicago, Illinois

The Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS) will be hosting an Industry Day workshop on November 15th at the Gleacher Center in Chicago, Illinois. As the Great Lakes regional component of the national Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), GLOS will be leading efforts to coordinate and intensify observation and monitoring  across the basin and the production of informational tools to deliver this information to users rapidly, accurately and dynamically. The GLOS Industry Day workshop is intended to inform both private and public-sector entities of innovative ways for their institutions to become involved in GLOS system design, development, and the creation of information-rich great lakes products. Panel presentations will focus on the status of  observing  systems at the national and Great Lakes levels, opportunities for industry involvement in GLOS, implications for the region's economy, and identification of GLOS end-user needs in a range of areas, including transportation and commerce, municipal water management, tourism, recreation and many others. Intended to bring together a comprehensive set of stakeholders, the GLOS Industry Day will appeal to a wide range of end-users, as well as those involved in designing and deploying the next generation of observational systems on the Great Lakes.


Registration for the GLOS Industry Day is provided free-of-charge. A modest lunch is being sponsored by the Great Lakes Chapter of the Alliance for Coastal Technologies (ACT).
