Report of a Workshop convened by the GCOS/GOOS/WCRP Ocean Observations Panel for Climate and the CLIVAR Upper Ocean Panel, with the sponsorship and support of the Nat. Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin. (NOAA). The aim of the workshop was to more explicitly link the scientific requirements of the Ocean Climate Observing System plan of GCOS/GOOS, and the scientific research areas of the CLIVAR Science Plan, to the implementation of the in situ sea level network, as represented by GLOSS and its Implementation Plan. The Workshop framed several statements and conclusions for consideration by NOAA, and the organizations with prime oversight responsibility. Illus.
