Participants of the 11th Session of the CLIVAR/IOC-GOOS Indian Ocean 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 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. Coordinate, and complete the implementation of the sustained ocean observing system for the Indian Ocean, to: (a) meet the common requirement of CLIVAR research foci and WCRP grand challenge, (b) satisfy the common requirements of GOOS and its modules; and (c) coordinate implementation activities in collaboration with relevant regional and global bodies, in particular IOGOOS and JCOMM.

3. Review and promote frontier multi-disciplinary research themes related to CLIVAR research foci and WCRP grand challenges. Liaise with relevant research panels of CLIVAR for coordinating scientific initiatives.

4. Report to the CLIVAR SSG and to GOOS through the IOC Perth Office.

Indian Ocean Observing System (IndOOS)

CLIVAR, in collaboration with Indian Ocean GOOS and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, is working to design and implement an integrated observing system for the Indian Ocean, including a basin-wide mooring array.

Indonesia Throughflow Task Team (ITF-TT)

The overarching goal of the Indonesia Throughflow Task Team (ITF-TT) is to identify scientific gaps of ITF knowledge and develop an integrated strategy towards an internationally sustained ITF observing system.
