congratulations
Congratulations
  • The OCO program has been a great force for progress in global ocean observations
  • Congratulations to Mike Johnson, the OCO staff and all of you who have made the progress toward the initial global ocean observing system
  • You have proven that the global upper ice-free ocean can be observed.

Moving Ahead w. Initial System
  • Getting metadata and best practices and real time data transmission in place throughout the OS
  • Documenting strategy and needs to sustain the global arrays
  • Improving system management for the observing activities, both research and operational – “OPS Center”
products and information
Products and Information
  • A range of analyses are now available

“GODAE” type near real time (high-res)

“CLIVAR” type delayed mode (lower-res)

  • These need to be examined, exploited and advice given about uncertainties and improvements needed
  • The wider community of marine users will depend increasingly on these

Interesting the wider community
  • We have a lot of work to do to convince the world why continuing to invest in observing the subsurface ocean is important to them.
  • There remains a great need for interesting ocean indices that can be related to surface climate or society
  • How the subsurface ocean affects the surface ocean and prediction (weather and climate) needs to be communicated better
expanding the oos
Expanding the OOS
  • Bring ecosystems and biogeochemistry communities into the global ocean observing system as quickly as feasible
  • Re-evaluate the initial plan for physical and carbon variables and revise as appropriate.
  • What about ‘sub-Argo’ ocean?
  • How to advance new generation satellite and in-situ capabilities?
ocean09
?Ocean09?
  • A symposium to follow OceanObs99 has been suggested
  • Goal would be to set the stage for the coming decade in the way that OceanObs99 did for the present decade
  • Have to address utility to society, new technology, new opportunities.
  • CLIVAR/OOPC/IMBER/??? As partners
  • Is this timely? If not ’09, when?

Toward Ocean09
  • Seasonal/Interannual forecast wkshop
  • 2nd Ocean Reanalysis workshop Sept07
  • Sensor workshop Ralf Prien late07?
  • OSE/OSSE workshop Nov07
  • Climate and Fisheries symposium mid-08
  • What White Papers, a la OceanObs99, needed? How to organize and fund?
the future
The Future?
  • No rest for the weary!
  • Must expand our product suite and our user base and broaden community interest and support
  • Financial climate for sustained observations is not welcoming
  • Beyond global-ocean-only…
