Joint WMO/IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) Ship Observations Team (SOT):  Joint WMO/IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) Ship Observations Team (SOT) Teruko Manabe WMO Secretariat Slide2:  What is JCOMM What is SOT VOS Panel SOOP Implementation Panel ASAP Panel collaboration between SOT and CO2 panel JCOMM Joint WMO/IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology :  JCOMM Joint WMO/IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology Intergovernmental coordination, regulation and management of operational marine meteorology and oceanography Equivalent for the oceans of existing body for operational meteorology Integrated operational ocean observing system and data management New products and services, close user interaction Involvement of all maritime countries An implementation mechanism for global GOOS Needs strong regional interactions and support Slide4:  JCOMM provides a global framework for the intergovernmental coordination of operational oceanography and marine meteorology Traditional responsibilities Implementation mechanism for global GOOS Organizational and operational structure similar to that for the World Weather Watch Global, regional and national where we are now:  where we are now Ship-based observations 6000 VOS observing meteorology and surface oceanography 120 SOOP for subsurface T&S 20+ ASAP for upper air Liaison with ocean CO2 community 1400 drifters observing meteorology and surface oceanography 100’s of ocean buoys for met & ocean 400 sea level stations in GLOSS Argo liaison JCOMMOPS support Sea ice monitoring, satellite and in situ Ocean satellites Requirements:  Requirements Maritime Safety and transport Large proportion of global commerce Critically sensitive to marine weather and climate Safe and economic sea transport for sustainable development Natural disaster prevention Tropical cyclones, waves and storm surges Maximum impact in coastal areas Operational forecasts and warnings, meteorology, oceanography, hydrology Global Climate Study Marine/ocean data to support Seasonal to interannual Decadal plus climate studies Slide7:  JCOMM STRUCTURE Ship Observations Team(SOT) http://www.jcommops.org/sot/:  Ship Observations Team(SOT) http://www.jcommops.org/sot/ Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) Panel Automated Shipboard Aerological Programme (ASAP) Panel Ship-of-Opportunity Programme (SOOP) Implementation Panel (SOOPIP) To maintain, coordinate, and integrate these programmes to support the range of presently defined operational and research applications Ensure that there is proper coordination in dealing with the volunteer ships and their crew Deal with common technical issues, such as telecommunications Look for and develop other areas of synergy First session of SOT (SOT-I), Goa, India, 25 February- 2 March 2002 http://www.wmo.ch/web/aom/marprog/Publications/publications.htm#JCOMM MEETING REPORT SOOPIP (SOOP Implementation Panel) http://www.brest.ird.fr/soopip/:  SOOPIP (SOOP Implementation Panel) http://www.brest.ird.fr/soopip/ Scientific objectives OOPC and CLIVAR Ocean Observations Panel ,(TOGA, WOCE) OOPC, SOOPIP and CLIVAR UOP convened a workshop to review the upper ocean thermal network (Melbourne, 1999) Implementation the status of the SOOP XBT network how to implement the recommendation of the workshop frequently repeated XBT network, as recommended by the review high-density XBT network, as recommended by the review XBT sampling by SOOPIP during the first half of 2001 Surface salinity sampling using thermosalinographs a comprehensive project plan of establishing a surface salinity network is under development. SOOPIP (SOOP Implementation Panel):  SOOPIP (SOOP Implementation Panel) Data Management and Programme Monitoring Real-time (low-resolution) and delayed mode (high-resolution) data GTSPP (Global Temperature and Salinity Profile Project) WOCE/CLIVAR Data Assembly Centres (scientific data quality control) SOOP Task Team on Quality Control and Automated Systems (TT/QCAS) Sampling and Resource Multidisciplinary Sampling SOOP Implementation Panel:  SOOP Implementation Panel Review, recommend on and, as necessary, coordinate the implementation of specialized shipboard instrumentation and observing practices; Coordinate the exchange of technical information on equipment and expendables, development, functionality, reliability and accuracy; Ensure the distribution of available programme resources to ships to meet the agreed sampling strategy in the most efficient way; Ensure the transmission of low resolution data in real time from participating ships; ensure that delayed more high resolution data are checked and distributed in a timely manner to data processing centres; Maintain, through the SOOP Coordinator, appropriate inventories, monitoring reports and analyses, and information exchange facilities; Provide general guidance to the coordinator in his support for the SOOP.
