1 1 Evergreen Workshop January 2006 KNMI, de Bilt Netherlands WMO Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) Programme In The Context Of Integrated Global CO 2 Observations Leonard Barrie Chief, Environment Division, WMO Search Engine “GAW” 

2 Observations: All Sources  All measure CO2 (total column, vertical profile, surface in situ)  Each have own data centre(s)  Each have own quality assurance programmes  Missing a total column network.  Currently not well coordinated with each other What Do These Systematic CO2 ObservationsHave In Common? Commercial Aircraft JAL Satellites- not originally dedicated: SCIAMACHY - dedicated and future :GOSAT, OCO WMO-GAW Global CO2 Monitoring Network of GCOS Commercial Aircraft Future: MOZAIC

9 9 Evergreen Workshop January 2006 KNMI, de Bilt Netherlands What is GAW?  WMO/GAW was established 1989 by merging GO 3 OS and BAPMoN.  GAW focuses on global networks for GHGs, ozone, UV, aerosols, selected reactive gases, and precipitation chemistry.  GAW is a partnership involving contributors from 80 countries.  GAW is coordinated by the Environment Division of WMO/AREP.  Currently GAW coordinates activities and data from 23 global stations, 637 regional stations, and 19 contributing and associate stations

10 10 Evergreen Workshop January 2006 KNMI, de Bilt Netherlands The GAW Mission  Systematic Global Monitoring Of Chemical Composition of the Atmosphere.  Analysis and Assessment in Support of International Conventions.  Development Of Air Pollution and Climate Predictive Capability

18 18 Evergreen Workshop January 2006 KNMI, de Bilt Netherlands The Role Of The World Meteorological Organization (WMO)  As the lead agency designated by IGOS to implement IGACO, WMO shall use its unique international experience, programmes and partnerships to build a generally accepted global plan and to promote implementation through bottom-up research efforts at the national and regional level.  IGACO builds on GAW, other WMO programmes and partnerships. It bridges surface-based, aircraft and satellite observations to the weather forecast and modelling research community.
