Structure Sponsored by WMO, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO, the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and the International Council for Science (ICSU), the Global Ocean Observing System contributes to the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) of Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS). (...) The Programme follows the Framework for Ocean Observing Process, which describes a clearly defined structure that allows ocean observing providers and users to plug-in at various points in the system. (...) The resulting data and information products enable ocean managers to determine where future efforts are most critical. Global networked observing systems and partnerships are an important element of the Global Ocean Observing System.

The situation is dire, especially in areas with observing stations shown in black (no observations exchanged), red (sporadic exchange of observations) or with too few stations altogether. (...) Why have substantial investments in observing systems not translated into increased observational data sharing? (...) Ability to pay versus the ability to observe: Left panel: density of observations by nation (red do not meet requirements).

In situ marine observations also provide ground truth for the validation of satellite observations and make measurements not yet obtainable by other means. For decades ships were the only means of obtaining such observations, but with the advent of WWW other types of observing platforms were developed. (...) New types of ocean observing platforms are expected to be increasingly used, e.g. surface wave gliders, sub-surface gliders, marine animal mounted observing platforms, and bottom-based observing platforms connected to old submarine telecommunication cables.
