The National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) manages several programs to monitor the Nation's coastal waters, including PORTS® (Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System). PORTS® provides ship masters and pilots with accurate, real-time information to help avoid groundings and collisions. CO-OPS requires an expanding suite of instruments to provide critical data from bays and harbors to support the maritime community. Many harbors are depth-constrained, and many bridge heights also limit safe vessel passage. With increasing vessel size and vessel traffic, there is a continually increasing risk of overhead allision with bridges. Some vessels may also avoid entering or departing a harbor because of bridge clearance (i.e. air gap) limitations. The economic gains potentially realized by both increased commerce and the avoidance of allisions are considerable, and a clear requirement for air gap information has been voiced by.....
