    oceanography needs, in-situ observing systems must comply with the following requirements. Coverage The observing systems to be put in place are different depending on the area and the phenomena to be sampled. We usually sort observing system into 3 categories: ¾ Global: System designed to provide data all over the ocean (e.g. Various state-of-the-art gridded satellite precipitation products (GPPs) have been derived from remote sensing and reanalysis data and are widely used in hydrological studies. An assessment of these GPPs against in-situ observations is necessary to determine their respective strengths and uncertainties.

    GEO Highlights Insight for a Changing World. The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is a truly unique partnership of national governments and international organizations aimed at ensuring that the information about our planet necessary to address global challenges is available to all. DIRECT (in-situ) observations. Weather stations: there are thousands of weather or meteorological stations measuring at or near the Earth’s surface meteorological parameters such as atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, air temperature and relative are observations at one location, or “in situ”. The number of stations is not evenly distributed over the.

      Objective evaluations of proposed observing systems, including satellites, ground-based or in-situ observations as well as new, currently unidentified observational approaches, will be needed to prioritize investments and maximize societal benefits, the authors propose. 92 thoughts on “ A call for an improved global climate measurement. The GOFC program is currently part of the Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS). GOFC was designed to bring together data providers and information users to make information products from satellite and in-situ observations of forests more readily available worldwide.

Get this from a library. In-situ observations for the Global Observing Systems: a compendium of requirements and systems. [Sushel Unninayar; R A Schiffer; United States.

Office of Mission to Planet Earth.; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;] -- " scientific rationale for observations, specifications of requirements, and applications (uses and users) based on.

observing systems, with the acquisition of ocean–atmosphere observables either from in situ or from satellites, the rich hierarchy of models to test our knowledge of Earth System functioning.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was established in as an outcome of the Second World Climate Conference, to ensure that the observations and information needed to address climate-related issues are obtained and made available to all potential GCOS is co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Abbreviation: GCOS.

The vastness, remoteness, and harshness of the oceans mean that collecting any in situ observations is expensive.

As a consequence, observing systems have been and will continue to be designed to measure as many variables as possible, so as to take full advantage of Cited by: 1. 1 INTRODUCTION. Sustained and systematic observations of marine ecosystems are needed to understand how the ocean is changing both naturally and as a result of human activities (Hoegh‐Guldberg, ; Miloslavich et al., ).Actions towards a more integrated and sustainable ocean observing system (OOS) to facilitate ocean discovery and environmental monitoring are Cited by: 1.

Finding: Construction of reliable CDRs requires consistent observing practices. Adaptive strategies (wherein the timing and location of radiosonde launches vary according to synoptic weather conditions) may introduce seasonally- and geographically-varying biases and render the data unsuitable for climate because the continuity of the essential climate monitoring network may be disrupted.

The CMEMS does not operate in situ observing systems but collect observations from data providers, mainly from EuroGOOS regional alliances and JCOMM networks (Observations programme Area).

It also collaborates with SeaDataNet and EMODnet physics to improve the service for historical/reprocessed data and to involve new partners. Sustaining Ocean Observations to Understand Future Changes in Earth’s Climate considers processes for identifying priority ocean observations that will improve understanding of the Earth’s climate processes, and the challenges associated with sustaining these observations over long timeframes.

The Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service provides Full, Free and Open Access to Data & Information related to the Global Ocean and the European Seas. It provides regular and systematic reference information (observations and models) on the physical state and marine ecosystems: temperature, currents, salinity, sea level, sea ice, marine optics, nutrients, etc.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO, Geneva, Switzerland), with the cooperation of other national and international bodies and organizations and using its global observing and information exchange capability, is in a position to provide an integrated, authoritative, continuing assessment of the cryosphere--a Global Cryosphere Watch (GCW).

The global network consists of about 1, upper-air stations (). Over two thirds of the stations make observations at UTC and UTC. Between and. This paper presents, through existing examples, the main characteristics of operational in-situ observing systems and the data management issues to be addressed for operational oceanography needs.

on complementarity between the different in-situ methods, and between in-situ and satellite observations. Not covered here is the important issue (for operational systems) of sustained routine observing system operation, of quality control and data dissemination.

This is addressed in the companion chapter by S. Pouliquen (this volume). Challenges and Innovations in Ocean In-Situ Sensors: Measuring Inner Ocean Processes and Health in the Digital Age highlights collaborations of industry and academia in identifying the key challenges and solutions related to ocean observations.

A new generation of sensors is presented that addresses the need for higher reliability (e.g. against biofouling), better integration on platforms in. the framework in which global and regional observations of sea - level change can be understood and properly interpreted.

ABSTRACTA global ocean observing system for the physical climate system, comprising both in situ and satellite components, was conceived largely at the Ocean Observations conference in St.

Raphael, France, in October In situ observations spanning from the early s to present are available from the International Comprehensive Ocean Atmosphere Data Set (ICOADS).

This data set includes observations of a number of the surface ocean and atmospheric variables from ships, moored and drifting buoys and C. Web Services for the Global Earth Observing System of Systems: /ch Web services provide users ever better methods to access and use Earth Observation data.

This essay is a brief and rather general survey of various global meteorological observing systems, both existing and proposed, which differ in one or more of the following respects: 1) Information content of variables : Philip D.

Thompson. Coastal Ocean Observing Systems provides state-of-the-art scientific and technological knowledge in coastal ocean observing systems, along with guidance on establishing, restructuring, and improving similar systems.

The book is intended to help oceanographers understand, identify, and recognize how oceanographic research feeds into the various designs of ocean observing systems.This presentation will provide information on the JCOMM in situ Observing Programme Support Centre (JCOMMOPS) and how it contributes to enhancing syne rgies between different ocean observing systems.

JCOMMOPS was initially established in by the first Session of the joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for.The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), an outgrowth of the many observing systems and strategies that matured or were developed during WOCE, includes a subset of WHP sections that are occupied every 7–10 years, crossing each deep ocean basin, and also some more regional coast-to-coast sections at much higher : Russ E.
