Ocean Climate Indices from Data - CLIVAR

OOPC report: Framework, indices, and the deep ocean Albert Fischer and Eric Lindstrom CLIVAR SSG-18, 2-5 May 2011 Building a common vision for ocean observations Provision of routine and sustained global information on the marine environment sufficient to meet societys needs for describing, understanding and forecasting marine variability (including physical, biogeochemical, ecosystems and living marine resources), weather, seasonal to decadal climate variability, climate change, sustainable management of living marine resources, and assessment of longer term trends post-OO09 Working Group

OceanObs09: calls for action (1) Calls on all nations and governments to fully implement by 2015 the initial physical and carbon global ocean observing system originally envisioned at OceanObs99, and refined at OceanObs'09. (2) Calls on all nations and governments to commit to the implementation and international coordination of systematic global biogeochemical and biological observations, guided by the outcomes of OceanObs09, and taking into account regional variations in ecosystems. 3 OceanObs09: calls for action (3) Invites governments and organizations to embrace 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. Recommendations on this Framework, considering how to best take advantage of existing structures, will be developed by an post-Conference working group of limited duration. (4) Urges the ocean observing community to increase our efforts to achieve the needed level of timely data access, sensor readiness and standards, best practices, data management, uncertainty estimates, and integrated data set availability. (5) Asks governments, organizations, and the ocean observing community to increase their efforts in capacity-building and education. 4 Sponsorship

Expanded EOVs Expanded observing systems and networks April 2011 Readiness Levels Mature: Requirements, systems, and data become elements of the sustained global ocean observing system. Pilot: Plans evolve from draft to projects and vetted in real-world implementation. Concept:

Initial articulation of ideas, and appropriate feasibility studies. In in s a c re Attributes: Peer review of ideas and studies at science, engineering, and data management community level. e R g

Attributes: Products of the global ocean observing system are well understood, documented, consistently available, and of societal benefit. Key Concepts of the Framework Articulated for global sustained ocean observing systems Designed for multidisciplinary approach Builds on existing structures and best practices Introduces Essential Ocean Variables as the common

language Assesses readiness based on feasibility and impact integrates developmental activity (R&D) into the framework Seeks to connect requirements setting process directly to scientific and society needs (with feedback from products) Systems approach better defines interfaces for all actors in the framework, promoting collaborative alignment of independent groups/communities/networks January 2011 Aligning organizations to implement the Framework The team considered several approaches for governing the Framework

Characterized by Simplicity Based on Functional Needs Bring Stakeholders Together Nominal Operating Costs Requires ongoing engagement of international sponsors and other bodies Recommends establishment of a Framework Steering Group: representatives of international sponsors of OO09, including WCRP ephemeral, not permanent allow progress to more permanent governance structure 4 April 2011, Exeter Structure of the Framework
