Fourth Session of the Joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology

The ocean is the ultimate global common goods. The ocean and coastal zones comprise unique international space where the international community bears a special responsibility to provide humanity with a far-reaching and innovative vision.

JCOMM has been acknowledged as an extremely successful implementation mechanism for completing the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) as well as the ocean component of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), by coordinating and developing standards and procedures for fully integrated marine observing, data management, and services system.

As a joint body of two organizations (WMO and IOC) JCOMM benefits from the strengths and expertise of the existing meteorological and ocean institutions, minimizing duplication of efforts, and acting as a bridge between the meteorological and oceanographic communities.

This event is taking place at the kind invitation of the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), the JeollaNamdo provincial government, Yeosu City, and the EXPO 2012 Yeosu Korea organizers. The session will open with a scientific and technical conference from 24 to 25 May and plenary sessions of the Joint Commission from 28 to 31 May 2012.

The Session will review achievements by the JCOMM community over the two and a half years, towards a fully-integrated marine observing, data management and services system with state-of-the-art technologies and capabilities.
