GCOS/GTOS Plan for Terrestrial Climate-related Observations, version 2.0

pub12.gif (52752 bytes)Abstract
June, 1997

The Plan provides an initial assessment of the requirements for climate-related observations which will be required to predict, detect and assess impacts of climate change. These requirements were developed in three meetings of the TOPC, but will be subject to revision as the Plan is reviewed, observational requirements change, and the scientific concepts and observational capabilities develop and improve. Future activities will focus on refining the requirements, prioritizing the requirements, and the initial implementation. It is intended that the Plan will be implemented through existing programmes.
