Global Climate Observation: the road to the future 2-4 March 2016, Amsterdam

Climate observations are essential for understanding the complexities of the global climate system, indeed virtually all breakthroughs that have been made in understanding climate have come from observations. This is why it is crucial to make further progress towards achieving a fully implemented, sustainable, global observing system for climate.

The next Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) status report will be compiled and published during the course of 2016 and will help to critically assess the current system and provide the basis for the next GCOS Implementation plan. Ahead of this, the conference Global Climate Observation: the Road to the Future is convened from 2-4 March 2016 at the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam, to allow experts dealing with climate observations and other key stakeholders the opportunity to their views and input into the new GCOS implementation plan prior to its publication.

Please mark your calendars now for this important conference from 2-4 March 2016. The registration page for the conference will open in due course and more detail on the programme will be available at that time. Please also pass this announcement on to colleagues and contacts who would also be interested in participating.

In the meantime if you have any questions related to the conference, do not hesitate to contact Carolin Richter, Director GCOS or the organising committee via email.
