Abstract
    The 9th session of the GOOS Scientific Steering Committee, meeting in Paris, France, from 6-8 March 2006 addressed GOOS development noting substantial progress with the implementation of the Open Ocean Module and the need to foster global implementation of the Coastal Module. The roles and responsibilities of GOOS Regional Alliances (GRAs) and mechanisms for enhancing cooperation amongst them were major topics of discussion. The Committee heard from, and discussed, a number of partner programs including the IOC/WMO Joint Commission on Marine Meteorology (JCOMM), the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Integrated Global Observing Strategy (IGOS). GOOS related Capacity building and outreach efforts were also discussed. The Committee noted that the two major expected results for GOOS during the 2006-2007 biennium are (i) increased member state contributions to operational open ocean observing systems; and (ii) establishment of clear principles and guidelines for GRAs.
