The Observatory is owned by a COI Org (see the [R2 Resource Page for Org]). It represents an observatory and its physical and information resources and can form agreements, for instance with other marine facilities.
The Observatory is governed by the Marine Operator, who uses Policy defined by the OOI Program Office Oversight actor and contracts with the Cyberinfrastructure Operator for Cyberinfrastructure services that he/she uses to operate a network of instruments. The Marine Observatory Facility applies control, processing, and resource management services to operate and govern a suite of Instruments, and provides real-time or near real-time Data Products, Event Detection and Instrument services for use in Laboratories.
