New GTOS Chair Appointed
 

1 October 2009

The GTOS Steering Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of the new GTOS Chair, Riccardo Valentini.

Riccardo Valentini will replace Berrien Moore, who has successfully led and coordinated the work of the GTOS Panels over the last five years. With a renewed emphasis on observations on the effects of climate changes, Valentini stresses the role of GTOS in the coming years:

The next GTOS strategy should address the concrete integration of space-based and ground observations with renewed emphasis. Remote sensing and in situ communities have developed an outstanding wealth of information and data sets in the last 20 years but for several reasons they have remained separated too long. Now there is an urgent need to develop products and models able to combine these two components.

Please feel free to send notices that you would like GTOS to disseminate to GTOS@fao.org
