Abstract
    The Intergovernmental Committee for GOOS met in Paris from 4 to 7 April 2005. It reviewed the state of GOOS planning and implementation at the global level through reports from the GOOS Scientific Steering Committee, the Ocean Observations Panel for Climate and the Coastal Ocean Observations Panel, and the Joint Technical Committee for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology. Reports on regional and national GOOS activities were also provided. The committee reviewed the outcome of the 3rd Earth Observation Summit and the committee decided to seek formal recognition of GOOS in the Global Earth Observation System of Systems’ 10-year Implementation Plan as the key component of ocean observations. The Committee reviewed the work programme and budget for the GOOS Project Office. It recognized the financial constraints and lack of human resources at the GPO and urged IOC Member States to increase their financial contribution to the GOOS Project Office. The Committee decided to postpone the election of the I-GOOS board to an extraordinary session to be held in the afternoon of 20 June 2005 in Paris. The Summary Report of the extraordinary session is included herein as a supplement. The current board continued to serve until the extraordinary session.
