POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

Since 1999, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.

“The biggest challenge is how to manage the oceans given that most of the world's population will be using and living next to an ocean in the next 50 years or so. We have to use our oceans in a sustainable manner, and that means first they have to be observed properly. We can't just use an ocean to decimation, without realizing what is happening. The challenge is to develop capacity and knowledge and establish where we should be observing our oceans.

One of the most important things is having consistent long-term observation. We need to link up old observations and monitor the changes in things like currents and hydrography in these areas, to investigate if the observations are related to a real trend or shift or just an anomaly in the system. POGO members are endeavouring to link all the long-term data sets in the world so that the data can be accessed more readily.”
