      level in climate observing systems. Today the GCOS German Coordinator is a contribution by DWD. The BSH serves as national point of contact for the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). IMAGI, GDI-DE, GCOS-, and GOOS Coordinator are also interlinked with the German GEO Experts Group (D-GEO). 1 FCCC/SBSTA//Misc.7 2 5 / GCOS (the Global Climate Observing System) issued ten principles climate observation networks should meet to assure data quality and longevity of records. They can be read at link to WMO. Some examples: A suitable period of overlap for new and old observing systems is required.

Furthermore, a wide range of Parties can contribute the in situ data needed for the calibration of satellite instruments, for the validation of satellite data and derived.   Reanalysis is, for example, a key contribution to the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS), allowing monitoring of the Earth’s climate even in places where direct observations are sparse. Reanalysis data have been used for continuing the development and improvement of weather forecasting, climate services, and climate change monitoring.

      The 8th National GCOS Roundtable held on 2 February focused on the activities of the National Climate Observing System, the revision of the international GCOS Implementation Plan and the exchange of Swiss climate data with international data centres.   This study was enabled by support from the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss within the framework of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) Switzerland, the Cryospheric.

Switzerland has a long tradition of climate observation. Tem-perature and precipitation series of more than yr, the world’s longest total ozone series and glacier measurements dating back to the end of the 19th century are only a few high-lights of Switzerland’s contribution to global and regional climate.

overview on the Swiss contributions to the systematic observations with regard to the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and related programmes. Swiss authorities encourage and support research and systematic observation on the climate system and its impacts.

This support extends to the specialised international organisations and programmes. The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was established in as an outcome of the Second World Climate Conference, to ensure that the observations and information needed to address climate-related issues are obtained and made available to all potential GCOS is co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Abbreviation: GCOS.

The GCOS Secretariat submitted to SBSTA in December, the Status of the Global Observing System for Climate, a report assessing the progress made against the actions set out in the former GCOS Implementation Plan dated from while also providing an assessment of the overall adequacy of the global observing system for climate.

Part of the Advances in Global Change Research book series (AGLO, volume 23) Abstract Fluctuations of glaciers and ice caps in cold mountain areas have been systematically observed for more than a century in various parts of the world and are considered to be highly reliable indications of worldwide warming trends (cf.

Fig. a in IPCC ).Cited by: The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) is a co-sponsored programme which regularly assesses the status of global climate observations and produces guidance for its improvement. It is co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO), United Nations Environment Programme (UN.

As stated by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), large gaps currently exist in the global climate observing system. Especially in developing and emerging countries such baseline data are missing but fundamental to plan and mitigate future developments.

One region, where climate change has major impacts, is Central Asia (SDC ). FOREWORD This Update of the Implementation Plan for the Global Observing System for Climate in Support of the UNFCCC1 was prepared in response to a request by Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) expressed at the 30th session of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) in June and.

About GEOSS. A central part of GEO’s Mission is to build the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). GEOSS is a set of coordinated, independent Earth observation, information and processing systems that interact and provide access to diverse information for a broad range of users in both public and private sectors.

In this way, the partners are making an important contribution to the Global Climate Observing System, or GCOS, for short. The coordination of Swiss climate observations is the responsibility of the Swiss GCOS Office, which resides within MeteoSwiss.

Global environmental change threatens the integrity of these systems and their ability to provide the goods and services upon which humanity has come to depend. This book gives an overview of the state of research in fields pertaining to the detection, understanding and prediction of global change impacts in mountain regions.

With its year-plus measurement series, GLAMOS is one of the world's oldest glacier measurement networks and makes an important contribution to the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS).

Previous GLAMOS findings have contributed to a globally unique database on glacier changes in Switzerland. German Climate Observing Systems - Inventory Report on the Global Climate Observing System Technical Report (PDF Available) January with Reads How we measure 'reads'.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was established two decades ago, in the context of the United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to ensure that the observations necessary to address climaterelated issues are defined, obtained and made available to all potential.

Increasingly planned and based on defined science goals, this Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS) has served the community well as a long-term and routine contribution to the Global Climate Observing System [GCOS] (a,b), delivering measurements that advance our capability to describe, understand and predict ENSO and climate variability.

ProClim Forum for Climate and Global Change of the Swiss Academy of Sciences and other observing systems. MeteoSwiss is responsible for climate monitoring in Switzerland. Monitoring of other climate variables (and as Swiss contribution to the GCOS networks), the Swiss National Basic Climatological Network (NBCN) wasset up in   Warning or observing systems: Implementation of new or enhanced tools and technologies for communicating weather and climate risks, and for monitoring changes in the climate system: Developing, testing and deploying monitoring systems, upgrade weather or hydromet services: Research and development (Smit et al.,Carter et al., ).

climate information at a global level is essential to inform decisions Satellites are uniquely placed to provide a global perspective on the climate system, to contribute to the monitoring of the 26 Essential Climate Variables (ECV) (GCOS, ), and to inform regional and local climate analyses.The Conference on the World Climate Research Programme to the Third Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change concluded that the global capacity to observe the Earth's climate system is inadequate and is deteriorating worldwide.Switzerland has a proven record in its strong commitment to environmental policy at national and international level.

GEO (and its Global Earth Observation System of Systems GEOSS), while relying on high-quality national environmental monitoring systems, provides an important contribution to the identification, documentation and monitoring of such environmental objectives at the global level.
