Global Ocean Observing System - Observations and data
GOOS banner.

The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) has succeeded in coordinating a collaborative system of sustained observations unified by GOOS principles. With its unique status within the UN system, GOOS is able to marshal the resources of the UNESCO/ IOC Member States to build a network around independently-managed and independently-funded observing elements (satellites, buoys, scientists, etc.).
