Abstract
    The Sixth Session of the NEAR-GOOS Coordinating Committee was held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, 31 August 2001. The meeting was held back-to-back to an expert workshop on NEAR-GOOS Ocean Environment Forecasting. The main objective of the Session was to discuss the progress on the elaboration of a medium-term strategy plan for NEAR-GOOS and seek a workable mechanism to support the process. To this end, the Coordinating Committee agreed to: (i) the establishment of two working groups charged with the elaboration of detailed and comprehensive project documents that highlight concrete steps toward establishing an observation and data management capacity, and an data assimilation, modelling and forecasting capacity respectively; (ii) to set in motion a parallel process to draw up a strategic plan that will build on the discussion paper discussed at the previous CC-meeting; and (iii) partly as a result of the preceding workshop, a consensus to enlist the support of interested scientists to elaborate specific fundable proposals for pertinent elements of a NEAR-GOOS initial observing system. The Session also discussed the general progress achieved under NEAR-GOOS in each of the countries over the past intersessional period.
