1 WMO WIGOS (WMO Integrated Global Observing System) Regulatory Material Information for CIMO TT-International Cloud Atlas, Nov 2013 Russell Stringer Chair, TT WIGOS Regulatory Material WIGOS - - WMO Integrated Global Observing System

2 Outline  The WIGOS framework  WIGOS Regulatory Material  Where the International Cloud Atlas fits  Who is contributing WIGOS - - WMO Integrated Global Observing System

3 The WIGOS framework: WMO observing systems WIGOS provides a collective identity for all WMO observing systems, and a framework for enabling their integration, interoperability, optimized evolution and best-practice operation. (from the WIGOS Implementation Plan….) The component observing systems of WIGOS comprise:  the Global Observing System (GOS),  the observing component of the Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW),  the WMO Hydrological Observing System (including the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS)) and  the observing component of the Global Cryosphere Watch (GCW), including their surface-based and space-based components. The above component systems include all WMO contributions to the co-sponsored systems, i.e., GCOS, GOOS, GTOS, as well as the WMO contributions to GFCS and GEOSS.

4  Ten Key Activity Areas: 1.Management of WIGOS implementation; 2.Collaboration with the WMO co-sponsored observing systems and international partner organizations and programmes; 3.Design, planning and optimized evolution; 4.Observing System operation and maintenance; 5.Quality Management; 6.Standardization, system interoperability and data compatibility; 7.The WIGOS Operational Information Resource; 8.Data and metadata management, delivery and archival; 9.Capacity development; 10.Communications and outreach. The WIGOS framework: WIGOS Implementation Plan (WIP) WIGOS - - WMO Integrated Global Observing System

5 To oversee, guide and coordinate WIGOS To facilitate and support the operation of WIGOS To plan, implement and evolve WIGOS component systems To ensure supply of and access to WIGOS observations Management of WIGOS Implementation Collaboration with co- sponsors and partners Communications and outreach Quality Management Standards, interoperability & compatibility Operational Information Resource Capacity Development Design, planning and optimised evolution Data discovery, delivery & archival Observing system operation & maintenance WIGOS - - WMO Integrated Global Observing System The WIGOS framework: Ten Key Activity Areas
