JCOMM Concept and Objectives NWP, climate studies, maritime services, ocean modeling and forecasting, ocean research, all require integrated metocean data and information streams To address these requirements and realize potential benefits, JCOMM jointly sponsored by WMO and IOC Combines and benefits from the strengths and expertise of the met. and ocean communities, avoids duplication of effort, integrates existing activities User oriented, functions at global, regional and national levels Integrated marine observing, data management and services system; extensive outreach programme An implementation mechanism for global GOOS and in situ marine component of GOS
Marine Meteorological and Oceanographic Services JCOMM as the bridge between meteorology and oceanography Operational oceanography now a reality Community welfare, socio-economic impacts, hazard mitigation, climate change, marine environment…. National and international cooperation essential – IOC, WMO, met and ocean agencies Atmosphere Ocean Climate Services Marine Weather Services Weather Services Oceanographic Services Ocean Climate Services
