Project Report - Pilot Project for the Integration of marine meteorological and other appropriate oceanographic observations into the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS): (WIGOS Pilot Project V - JCOMM Pilot Project for WIGOS)
This Project report provides rationale for the development of the Pilot Project, summarizes the activities undertaken under the Pilot Project, especially with regard to its three key deliverables, and provides information on its achievements, and lessons learned. In the context of marine meteorological and oceanographic observations relevant to WMO Programmes and Co-sponsored Programmes, this report explains the benefits of WIGOS integration for National Meteorological and Hydrographic Services (NMHSs), National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODCs, of IOC), and also for ocean data users. It provides information on the impact of this integration process on the activities of NMHSs, and NODCs. The report also makes an analysis of strengths and weaknesses in the management of the ocean observing systems, leading to some legacy recommendations for the project legacy in terms of instrument practices, data exchange, quality management, governance, and Capacity Building. Finally, the report provides for a proposed workplan, responsibilities and costing as part of the Pilot Project legacy.
1.6 This report may be used by the Directors of NMHSs or NODCs to make the case at the national level for achieving the described integration, and therefore engaging in the necessary developments, funded nationally, to meet the requirements proposed under the Pilot Project.
