This paper describes a standards-based global ocean monitoring system developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) with collaborating partners. This system adapts the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451 smart transducer interface standard, Programmable Underwater Connector with Knowledge (PUCK) protocol, and Smart Transducer Web Service (STWS) interface to monitor the ocean environment globally via the Internet. A prototype system is presented with a case study to illustrate the ocean monitoring scenario.
