ABSTRACT BODY: We present a virtual ocean observatory (VOO) that supports climate and ocean
science as addressed in the NRC decadal survey. The VOO is composed of an autonomous software
system, in-situ and space-based sensing assets, data sets, and interfaces to ocean and atmosphere
models. The purpose of this observatory and its output data products are: 1) to support SWOT mission
