OceanObs'09 Public Comments 2011-06-01T10:31:39Z WordPress http://www.oceanobs09.net/blog/?feed=atom admin <![CDATA[A Framework for Ocean Observing]]> http://www.oceanobs09.net/blog/?p=1520 2011-06-01T10:31:39Z 2011-06-01T10:31:20Z At the OceanObs’09 conference, you, the participants of the conference, adopted a Conference Statement which charged a working group with the task of developing a ”Framework for planning and moving forward with an enhanced global sustained ocean observing system over the next decade, integrating new physical, biogeochemical, biological observations while sustaining present observations … and taking best advantage of existing structures”.

This working group in the past 18 months developed this Framework for Ocean Observing (click to download).

The Framework is meant to help guide the many different global and regional organizations with a stake in an ocean observing system to work together in a voluntary collaborative way for mutual gain. It introduces the concept of Essential Ocean Variables, and of assessment and development of Readiness for sustained observations; and promotes collaboration in developing requirements, observing networks, and data and information streams. This common language is meant to guide participating organizations and programmes, and the entire ocean observing community, in finding and defining their niche and contribution in this larger Framework.

The team’s goal was to be the voice of the OceanObs’09 participants, speaking to the sponsors of the ocean observing system.

Your feedback on this is welcome in the comments below, which will remain open through 29 July 2011.

This version of the Conference Summary is quite different from a previous draft that was circulated for comment in early 2010. We have in the end worked down two dead ends in the past year:

  • We tried building a conference summary out of the session summaries that were prepared by the session chairs and rapporteurs, but found these to be rather uneven in style and density;
  • We went back to the source material and extracted from all of the Community White Papers their core recommendations for the observing system, and tried to compile this into a meeting summary - but similarly failed because these were so uneven in style and prescriptiveness;

and we have finally come to this draft version inspired by the material above but using a different approach, which has 3 overall sections:

  1. a high-level executive summary,
  2. a description of the conference process,
  3. a synthesis of recommendations, opportunities and challenges for the observing system, broken down by component: observing platforms, sensor and technology development, the data system, information and services, and overall observing system design.

The document also includes a preface that would be the first piece of the volume, followed by the table of contents, the adopted Conference Statement, and the summary we seek comment on.
