IODE Steering Group for Global Ocean Surface Underway Data Pilot Project (SG-GOSUD) Third Session Monterey, USA, 3-4 November 2003
The Third Session of the IODE Steering Group for Global Ocean Surface Underway Data (GOSUD) Pilot Project was held in Monterey, USA, from 3-4 November 2003. During this session the Steering Group reviewed the activities of the intersessional period and the accomplishments to date. The GOSUD Global Data Assembly Centre (GDAC) has been established at Coriolis, France, who will build the ftp structure to provide access to the underway data. It is also expected that http access will be developed. The Group also reviewed the tasks identified in the Project Plan and assigned leaders for the uncompleted tasks and established target dates. The project will seek to raise its profile within the scientific community during the next year.
