Climate Monitoring Architecture
In response to the challenge of monitoring climate from space, CEOS, CGMS and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) have developed a global architecture for climate monitoring from space that has been specifically constructed in response to GCOS needs and requirements.
The Climate Monitoring Architecture for space-based Observations
In this context, the WGClimate is the central focal point for the collection and provision of long-term Climate Data Records. This is achieved through the ECV Inventory.
