The Joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology

Regional Marine Instrumentation Centres

WMO-IOC Regional Marine Instrument Centres (RMICs) have been established by JCOMM (Recommendation 1, JCOMM-III) as a mean to provide (i) facilities for the calibration and maintenance of marine instruments and the monitoring of instrument performance; (ii) assistance with regard to instrument inter-comparisons; and (ii) appropriate training facilities. The goal of RMICs is to facilitate adherence of observational data and metadata and processed observational products to higher level standards for instruments and methods of observation.
