Guernica, Spain, June 17-20, 1997

The purpose of the meeting was to bring together representatives from selected networks to provide the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and the Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS) steering committees with advice on the best way to proceed in developing a network of ecological sites to meet both GCOS and GTOS objectives. The participants were asked to make a series of recommendations to the GTOS Steering Committee and the JSTC of GCOS that, if accepted, would result in a nucleus for a GTOS network that would not only meet the needs of the Global Observing Systems, but also the needs of individual networks and sites. Specific goals for the meeting were to:

  • Establish a consensus for the need for an overarching international framework for ecological networks;
  • Establish guiding principles for the development of such a system;
  • Agree to an overall architecture for such a system;
  • Develop a demonstration project that can be undertaken to show the benefit of working together;
  • Develop a series of required steps to establish a GOS-Net
