System (GOOS) and Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS) on behalf of the G30S, will define and clarify their input to the database and discuss a suggested review methodology.

The Chairman of the GOSSP, Mr John Morgan and of WGSAT, Dr John Eyre, opened the third session of the GOSSP and the third session of WGSAT, on Tuesday, May 27th. The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) is a co-sponsored programme which regularly assesses the status of global climate observations and produces guidance for its improvement.

Appendix VIII: Descriptions of Existing GTOS/GCOS Networks. GCOS Terrestrial Network for Glaciers (GTN-G). Overview. Changes over time that can be detected in the mass, volume, area and length of the world's glaciers provide some of the clearest signals in nature of climate change.

[1] Unlike the permafrost network, which is only now being established, systematic observations of glacier. Global Climate Observing System.

It also addresses the increasing economic challenges of sustaining observing systems in times of scarce resources, new technologies and increased demands on data generation, management and exchange.

Many of these actions are based on business as usual; others are more aspirational and ambitious. Milestones - Establishment of GCOS as an outcome of the Second World Climate Conference () Plan for the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), Publication No.

GCOS, GCOS Plan for Space-based Observations, Publication No. GCOS   The best established of the terrestrial observation networks that contribute to the GTOS and GCOS include the various global, regional and national hydrological networks that have been built up under a range of WMO, UNESCO, FAO and other programmes.

Figure 8 shows the status of the GTOS/GCOS Baseline River Discharge Network (GTN‐R). This session will cover keynote and oral presentations identifying how to best communicate the results of climate science and observations to the general public, policy makers and politicians.

It will cover the development of key indicators such as ocean heat content or sea level rise. GCOS. GCOS is a joint undertaking of the World Meteorological Organization (), the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (), the United Nations Environment Programme and the International Council for Science ().Its goal is to provide comprehensive information on the total climate system, involving a multidisciplinary.

IPCC Fourth Assessment Report Executive Summary Learning from the authors of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report and its findings to help guide future strategies for climate change observations and research was the key objective of a workshop organised jointly by the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), the World Climate Research.

Reports / Enquiries – GCOS has several queries and reports that can be requested at any stage of operations – these include out turn reports, terminal occupancy reports amongst various others. Electronic Data Interface – this feature facilitates the exchange of information between GCOS and other external/ internal systems.

This page lists the status of Global Climate Observing System Implementation Plan actions as summarised in the Status of the Global Observing System for Climate ().The actions are listed by domain and action number, and include the related ECVs.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was founded to globally coordinate climate observation and thereby to provide users with the data and information needed to address climate-related concerns. In Switzerland, GCOS is implemented by a variety of national partner institutions coordinated by the Swiss GCOS Office at MeteoSwiss.

The observing requirements for the GOOS are specified by scientific panels with the appropriate expertise.

These panels include, the Coastal Oceans Observing Panel (COOP) and the Ocean Observing Panel for Climate (OOPC).Requirements of the Climate Module were initially specified by the Ocean Observing System Development Panel (OOSDP) in These discussions provide a key input into the new GCOS Implementation Plan that is now being prepared for UNFCC in The conference Global Climate Observation: the Road to the Future was held from March at the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam.

31 WCRP Report No. 11/ UNESCO. The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) is launching an open review of the current requirements for Essential Climate Variables (ECV) that are the basis for the global systematic observation of the climate system.

GCOS would like to invite as wide a .GCOS Land ECV - Soil Moisture Soil moisture is an important variable in land–atmosphere feedbacks at both weather and climate timescales.

It plays a major role in determining how the energy flux into the land from incoming radiation is partitioned into fluxes of latent and sensible heat from the land to the atmosphere, and in the allocation.This page lists the Global Climate Observing System Essential Climate Variables (ECVs).The contents of this index are derived from the Status of the Global Observing System for Climate (), and the CEOS Response to the GCOS IP ( Update).The ECVs are listed alphabetically by domain.
