POGO Statement on the Value of GOOS

In September 2018, POGO issued a Consensus Statement on the importance and value of ocean observations, for both science and society.

This Statement reflects the agreement by the Directors of 38 major oceanographic institutions from around the world, to highlight the need for sustained support for ocean observations, their international coordination through a fully operational Global Ocean Observing system (GOOS), and particularly the role of GOOS in supporting the World Ocean Assessment, which is led by the United Nations and currently entering its second cycle.
