Working with our Kenyan partners, we will develop an ocean monitoring and decision support system tailored to meet the country’s immediate needs for sustainable management of its coastal resources. This system will take advantage of computational tools, satellite data products and model-derived physical and biological oceanographic datasets that we developed for an ongoing coastal resource management project in the Sultanate of Oman. The system will integrate existing and planned marine resource data collections into a Kenya-centric data system that will then be fused with satellite and model outputs to provide information on ocean state, environmental forecasts, potential fishery habitats, and tools critical for management and decision making for better stewardship of Kenya’s coastal resources. We will conduct two training workshops (Kenya and USA) with our Co-PIs and their teams.
