The Scientific and Technical Workshop preceding the annual Data Buoy Cooperation Panel (DBCP) meetings has become an important forum for stimulating discussion among data buoy operators, designers, and data users. The twenty-sixth session of the DBCP (DBCP-XXVI) will be hosted by the Scottish Association for Marine Sciences (SAMS), held at the William Speirs Bruce lecture theatre, and will begin Monday, 27 September 2010 and end on the same day.

Buoy programme implementation
This presentation provides an overview of how to implement a buoy programme, including requirements and design aspects, budget considerations, and practical deployment aspects.
JCOMM Observations Programme Area (OPA) Implementation Goals
The Observations Programme Area (OPA) is primarily responsible for coordinating and facilitating the development and maintenance of in situ and ground-based remote sensing observation networks (moored and drifting buoys, all ship-based systems, tide gauge networks, and others as appropriate), as well as their related telecommunication facilities, and their coordination with space-based observational networks. This document provides for JCOMM goals regarding the implementation of these observing systems, primarily addressing the needs expressed in the ocean chapter of the Global Climate Observing System Implementation Plan (GCOS-92), which provides specific implementation targets for building and sustaining an initial global ocean system. This baseline of systematic observations called for by the GCOS-92 Plan is designed to meet climate requirements. However, in addition to meeting climate requirements for the ocean, marine services in general will be improved by its implementation. The system will support other applications including global and regional numerical weather prediction, global and coastal ocean prediction, marine hazards warning, marine environmental monitoring, naval applications and many other non-climate uses.
