On Weather and Forest Monitoring, GEO, and GCOS Thoughts for the GCOS Steering Committee by Jim Baker Geneva, 30 Sept 2010
Weather and Forest Monitoring Elements of Forecast systems –Data –Models –Information Delivery –National Systems –International Coordination
3 Data System Elements ModelsGIS Users Science Satellite Imagery Field Studies Standards
Forest Carbon Models Delivery of Carbon Information through GIS Forest Carbon Satellite and Field Studies To Users Forecast Models Delivery of Warnings and Forecasts Satellite and Ground Observation To Users Weather Forests
Key role of international organizations WMO –Set standards –Ensure data flow –Build capacity FAO/GEO –Standards (with IPCC) –Data Flow –Capacity building
Role of GEO Working through GEO Forest Carbon Tracking Task Ensure satellite and ground data for forest monitoring integrated with models in a systematic and coordinated effort Support UNFCCC Work with FAO and IPCC
