Abstract
    The GSSC, comprised of representatives of several major industry and research institution leaders, the chair of OOPC, chair of GRC, director EEA, and others met in London March 8-12, 2010 to discuss the status of the GOOS and what actions seem most urgent to push GOOS forward. Advances in coastal GOOS are being plotted through the PICO which is drawing up a coastal implementation plan intended to galvanize activities of GRAs to produce coastal observations which will underpin the expansion of GOOS into coastal zones with strong regional priorities. Reports of the needs and advances of Open Ocean GOOS (or Climate GOOS) through activities of the Global Climate Observation System and the Ocean Obs' 09 working group, emphasize the potential for expansion and completion of OOGOOS, but also the only partial coordination and support from the IOC, UNEP, ICSU and WMO, the sponsors of GOOS, in direct participation of these forces. A conclusion of the GSSC was that the coordination of GOOS from the IOC must be improved and shown to be an IOC priority. The intergovernmental governance paradigm for GOOS must be questioned if stronger participation by the member states cannot be elicited. The role of the I-GOOS, GSSC and other IOC based coordination bodies of the GOOS should be questioned, restructured, and adapted to new needs.
