APDRC...Quo Facis?. Data serving and archiving at the Asia-Pacific Data-Research Center IPRC. The APDRC was established within the IPRC to be a climate data and web-based product serving facility. Our mission is to increase understanding of climate variability in the Asia-Pacific region by:

Data serving and archiving at the Asia-Pacific Data-Research Center
User access to data either by copy or ftp, then use local software
Data reformat (netcdf, ieee, grib, etc.)?
Client s/w limitations?
Disk storage/transfer limitations?
As the international community participates in the demonstration phase of GODAE,
there is an overarching need for rapid delivery of data products from satellites and models to the broad user community including regional operational entities.

The World Climate Research Program (WCRP) was formed in 1980 by the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the World Meteorological Office (WMO) to provide international framework for scientific cooperation in the study of global change.
The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was established in 1992 to ensure that the observations and information needed to address climate-related issues are obtained and made available to all potential users. GCOS is sponsored by the WMO, the ICSU, and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) is a sustained, co-ordinated international system for gathering data about the oceans and seas of the Earth, a system for processing such data, with other relevant data from other domains, to enable the generation of beneficial analytical and prognostic environmental information services, and the research and development on which such services depend for their improvement.
In 1978 (?), WCRP, IOC and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) formed the Climate Change Committee for the Ocean (CCCO). This committee then established the Ocean Observation Panel for Climate (OOPC).
The OOPC oversees the implementation of an ocean observation system for GCOS (or, equivalently, the climate component for GOOS) and, with GCOS the Atmospheric Observation Panel for Climate (AOPC). OOPC has several projects, including CLIVAR, GODAE and ARGO.
GODAE therefore is a project of OOPC and is sponsored by GCOS, GOOS and WCRP.
