Observing the Earth as a Complex System WMO systems collaboration (WIGOS oversight board within WMO) Collaboration with space community Collaboration with GCOS, GOOS, GTOS, GEO Circulation Surface Winds Precipitation Reflection and Transmission Surface Temperature Evaporation Currents Upwelling Circulation Surface Winds Precipitation Reflection and Transmission Surface Temperature Evaporation Currents Upwelling InfiltrationRunoff Nutrient Loading Surface Temperature CurrentsInfiltrationRunoff Nutrient Loading Surface Temperature Currents Surface Winds Precipitation Reflection and Transmission Evaporation Transpiration Surface Temperature Surface Winds Precipitation Reflection and Transmission Evaporation Transpiration Surface Temperature Land Ocean Atmosphere

8 WIGOS Framework Implementation Plan Key Activity Areas for WIGOS Implementation 2. Collaboration with WMO and co-sponsored OSs Develop guidance, mechanisms and procedures for engagement coordination and collaboration with partner organizations 2014ICG-WIGOS Partners Develop the Architecture for Climate Monitoring from Space (ACMS) focusing on GFCS four priorities CGMS CEOS CBS, WMOSP Examine and recommend areas where closer regional cooperation and coordination would be beneficial Satellite user conferences EUMESAT Asia/oceania, NOAA Establish closer collaboration at the national level, within NMHS, with other government agencies, and with potential external data providers Members RAs

9 WIGOS Framework Implementation Plan Key Activity Areas for WIGOS Implementation 3. Design, planning and optimized evolution Complete RRR practices, procedures, responsibilities and mechanisms for all systems and agreed app. areas CBS Other TCs Define GFCS new requirements Develop procedures for and carry out a design for WIGOS at the global scale planning and optimizing space constellations Evolve and implement OSs in Regions following the technical guidance of TCs as represented in the EGOS-IP and other observation system implementation plans WMO Regional Associations: Regional satellite data and products requirements

10 Dr. W. Zhang, WMO 9th European Space Weather Week, Brussels 10 Members’ organizations and programmes 10 WMO Rolling Requirements Review process “Statement of Guidance” and Implementation Plan for observing capabilities (Actions,Recommen d) Requirements Gap Analysis on observations Derived variables Performances Space and ground- based instruments

11 VISION FOR THE GOS IN 2025 Integration –The GOS will have evolved to become part of the WIGOS, which will integrate current GOS functionalities, which are intended primarily to support operational weather forecasting, with those of other applications: climate monitoring, oceanography, atmospheric composition, hydrology, and weather and climate research;

12 VISION FOR THE GOS IN 2025 Integration –Integration will be developed through the analysis of requirements and, where appropriate, through sharing observational infrastructure, platforms and sensors, across systems and with WMO Members and other partners; –Surface and space-based observing systems will be planned in a coordinated manner to cost effectively serve variety of user needs with appropriate spatial and temporal resolutions.

13 Observational Requirements under WIGOS Framework Inclusion requirements of –Weather, DRR –Climate (GFCS, GAW..), –Water (WHYCOS,..) –Environment (GAW, Health) –Co-sponsored observing systems WIGOS Space component From weather satellite to WIGOS space component CGMS new baseline with greatly enhanced global satellite constellations to meet WWW, GFCS, GAW, WHYCOS,GCW etc..
