CLIVAR/IOC-GOOS Indian Ocean Region Panel
The CLIVAR/GOOS Indian Ocean Panel provides scientific and technical oversight for implementation of the sustained ocean observing system for the Indian Ocean and coordinates research on the role of the Indian Ocean on the climate system.
Terms of Reference
1. Provide scientific and technical oversight for a sustained ocean observing system for the Indian Ocean and Indonesian Throughflow in order to provide ocean observations needed for climate variability research, and to underpin operational ocean applications and services relevant to the region, particularly with regard to ocean-state estimation and climate prediction.
2. Develop, coordinate, and implement a plan for a sustained ocean observing system for the Indian Ocean, to: (a) meet the common requirement of CLIVAR research themes and regional initiatives, particularly those identified by AAMP and VACS and the CLIVAR modelling panels; (b) satisfy the common requirements of GOOS and its modules; and (c) coordinate implementation activities in collaboration with relevant regional and global bodies and IOGOOS and JCOMM in particular.
3. Liaise with relevant research panels of CLIVAR and implementation panels of GOOS and JCOMM and provide a focal point for coordination of ocean observing networks in the region.
4. Report to the CLIVAR SSG through its AAMP and to GOOS through the IOC Perth Office.
