This paper reviews development of a basin-scale observing system and regional/coastal observing systems in the Indian Ocean, most of which are implemented by national or institutional projects/programs under international coordination by the Indian Ocean GOOS (Global Ocean Observing System) Regional Alliance and the CLIVAR (Climate Variability and Predictability)/GOOS Indian Ocean Panel. Scientific foci of the observing systems, major components, and societal applications are described, and selected scientific results obtained from the data are highlighted.
