Operational Oceanography aims to address many challenges with timescales from days to decades, regions ranging from coastal areas to the global ocean and applications from off-shore industries to ocean ecosystems. This is inherently an international issue, requiring broad collaboration and is beyond the capability of any one country.
GODAE OceanView is now established as a long-term international programme for Ocean Analysis and Forecasting. Improving the ocean analysis and forecasting systems and the development of new capabilities (e.g eco-system modelling) requires cooperation with the international ocean science community.
GODAE OceanView through its science team (GOVST) and Task Teams provides a platform for international exchange and collaboration. This approach is being integrated with parent bodies (e.g. GEO), international research programs (e.g. GSOP-CLIVAR, ARCOM, etc.) and integovernmental organisations (those within the WCRP, in IGBP and in the WMO World Weather Research Program) including JCOMM ET-OOFS.
In particular GODAE OceanView will
