Abstract
    The third session of the ad hoc Advisery Group for IOCARIBE-GOOS took place on the premises of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) of the US. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Miami between April 2 and 5, 2001. The main purpose of the meeting was te review the draft chapters of the "The Case for IOCARIBE-GOOS", which is the strategic plan for IOCARIBE-GOOS. The strategic plan will be finalized for presentation to the IOCARIBE meeting planned for Mexico in 2002. Prior to that a regional workshop should be held to develop an appropriate set of pilot projects; initial topics might be, for instance, (i) modelling and analysis; and/or (ii) data and information management.The meeting was timed to take advantage of the occurrence in Miami on April 3-5 of the Oceanology International (OI) 2001 Americas meeting. During a day-long OI session entitled "Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico Regional GOOS Symposium", on April 5th, the draft strategic plan for IOCARIBE-GOOS was presented to the wider community for the first time so as to obtain feedback that would help to improve the plan. The Symposium was well attended and feedback was strongly positive. The papers from the Symposium will be published in a special issue of an appropriate Caribbean science journal.
