Status of, and linkages with the International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (ICOADS)
This document reviews the status of the International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (ICOADS)—including the International Maritime Meteorological Archive (IMMA) format, which is in wide use for storing historical and contemporary marine data. Potential interoperability and convergence issues between IMMA and the International Maritime Meteorological Tape (IMMT) format are reviewed, including a discussion of proposed recommendations to be passed to TT-DMVOS. A planned initiative seeking to evolve ICOADS to a more advanced (bias adjusted) version is outlined, as well as potential linkages with satellite datastreams. Finally, the document discusses a proposal for a formal recognition of ICOADS, and potentially other centres, within WMO and IOC through JCOMM.

Comparison of GTS Data Streams
This document provides information on a comparison of three GTS data streams: from the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts ECMWF, for December 2007. For this study, it proved impractical to compare GTS data from a fourth data stream, from the UK Met Office, due to translation of the original SHIP (FM13) data into BUFR.

Data and Metadata: Operational Flow
This document provides information on issues related to the operational flow of data and metadata related to marine climatology. In particular, this includes (i) BUFR encoding requirements and template development status for ship data and other marine data, (ii) processes currently used to modify some electronic logbooks, and to document, archive, and harmonize the computational algorithms, (iii) the current status of the hip masking issue related to the concerns expressed by ship owners and masters with regard to ship identification and position being made available via public websites, (iv) the status of the Publication No. 47 and future plans, (v) metadata issues including the status of the Ocean Data Acquisition Systems (ODAS) metadata system hosted by China, efforts across JCOMM to gather current and historical ODAS metadata to be included into this or other databases (e.g., Pub. 47 or JCOMMOPS), and discussion about the most appropriate place for managing the mobile offshore platforms and fixed platforms metadata.

Data management expectations from the OceanObs'09 conference
This document summarizes the results of data management discussions at the OceanObs 09 conference (Venice, Italy, 21-25 September 2009). It indicates the expectations of the ocean community towards a global ocean data system, and presents the possible solutions that could be implemented. The data management community needs to take these into consideration and to choose implementation strategies that achieve community expectations.
