Title: An Indian Ocean Observing Strategy: “a partnership of agencies and institutions supporting sustained observations in the indian ocean region.”
Authors: Erb, W.
ASFA Terms: Oceanographic data
Issue Date: 13-Nov-2000
Abstract: This paper makes a case for the establishment of an Indian Ocean climate and ocean observing system under the umbrella of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). It begins by identifying the importance of the Indian Ocean and the difficulties, which must be overcome to establish cooperation in the region. Other GOOS regional organizations are identified to provide models for organization and this is followed by a suggestion of one appropriate for the Indian Ocean. Finally, background on the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission’s (IOC) involvement in Indian Ocean marine science development is given to point out the region’s historical association with the IOC and to provide tangible building blocks for further development. The paper will hopefully serve as a catalyst for development without dictating the final preferences of the region or the approach it might decide.
