Governance

The National Mooring Network is the largest, most complex and most multi-institutional IMOS Facility.  Four institutions (CSIRO, AIMS, SIMS/UNSW and SARDI) have day-to-day responsibilities for components of the National Reference Station network and the network of regional shelf arrays.  To ensure we have appropriate mechanisms in place to discuss, agree on and implement IMOS-standard approaches to important issues with network-wide implications the National Reference Station network and the network of regional shelf arrays is governed by a Facility steering committee made up of Craig Steinberg (AIMS, Chair), Moninya Roughan (UNSW), John Middleton (SARDI), Ming Feng (CSIRO) and David Hughes (CSIRO)

 

This arrangement does not include the Acidification and Passive Acoustic sub-facilities which are led by their own sub-facility leaders.
