Strategic Planning for Operational Oceanography

  • Nicholas C. Flemming


The question that I will try to answer in this paper is “ how can national, regional, and international agencies rationally develop a strategy or linked strategies which will tell them whether it is worth investing in an operational ocean observing and forecasting system, and if the answer is positive, how should this investment be planned, implemented, and managed?” We will consider first the motives for establishing the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and its regional components.
