Global Ocean Observing System What is GOOS? The international GOOS programme is a collection of observing systems, which provide near real time measurements of the state of the oceans for observing, modelling and analysing marine and ocean variables and which support operational oceanography worldwide. The Mediterranean Operational Network for the Global Ocean Observing System (MONGOOS) has been established in to further develop operational oceanography in the Mediterranean Sea.. MONGOOS is promoting partnerships and capacity building for GOOS in the Mediterranean Sea.. MONGOOS is creating a continuous working framework with EuroGOOS and GOOS Africa in order to .

  The conclusion is that though challenges continue with some components of the Global Ocean Observing System, overall the system continues to evolve and improve. The data are available in real-time to drive assimilation models, and expectations are increasing for more observational by: Introduction. This web site was created to provide easy access to eXpendable BathyThermographs (XBTs) data, XBT-derived products, and other XBT-related scientific and operational information; and to also bring together scientists to highlight the uses of XBT data including upper ocean thermal structure and variability, and ocean current transport.

The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) The GOOS is a permanent global system for observations, modeling and analysis of marine and ocean variables to support operational ocean services worldwide.

GOOS provides accurate descriptions of the present state of the oceans, including living resources; continuous forecasts of the future conditions. The book guides the reader through the analysis, interpretation, modeling, and synthesis of these data.

This book will be of value to those interested in the global oceans, in climate variability and change, and in the oceanic uptake of anthropogenic carbon, particularly oceanographers, meteorologists, and other climate scientists.5/5(2).

The Global Ocean Observing System is a study by the Ocean Studies Board intended to provide information and advice to federal agencies (the U.S. GOOS Interagency ad hoc Working Group) to help define and implement an effective, affordable, and customer-based U.S. contribution to GOOS.

The principal contribution of UNESCO to issues related to rising sea-levels is the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), a collaborative international effort led by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (UNESCO-IOC).

GOOS is a system of programmes, each of which is working on different and complementary aspects of establishing an operational ocean observation. The Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program is the U.S. Federal source and international leader for sustained, in situ global ocean observations and information in support of research, monitoring, and prediction.

The purpose of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) is to enable the state of the ocean to be described, its changing conditions to be forecast, and its effects on climate change to be predicted, and to facilitate sustainable development by ocean users and managers.

The Global Observing System is the most important programme for weather, climate and related environmental observing, recording and reporting when it come to the preparation of operational forecasts and warning services as well as other services.

"Wunsch has led the effort to build a global ocean observing system, which has brought oceanography into a new era. Here, he enables students to appreciate the connections between the basics of this science with the infusion of data from satellites, robotic deep Cited by: 9.

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 Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and its partners have worked together over the past decade to break down barriers between open-ocean and coastal observing, between scientific disciplines, and between operational and research institutions.
