GOOS Associated and Co-sponsored Programmes and Pilot Projects

International programmes establishing observation components of the GOOS are often established independent of GOOS.  As they mature and seek recognition as essential elements of a long-term sustained global observing system the GOOS encourages them by sponsoring further development, encouraging integration with other observing programmes and recognizing the readiness of systems to become operational.

These programmes are now, or have been associated by the GOOS, and are key components of the international community of ocean observation systems.
