Summary
Abstract: The Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP) seeks to establish an
integrated global observing system for the water cycle which responds
to both scientific and social needs. It is built as the foundation of
the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) in cooperation with the
World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and Committee on Earth
Observation Satellites (CEOS) under the framework of the Integrated
Global Observing Strategy partnership (IGOS-P).

CEOP is an effort to address some of the critical aspects of the
climate system involving land areas in particular over a 2 year period
beginning in mid-2001. It will focus on two overall issues: 1) water
and energy fluxes and reservoirs over land areas, and 2) monsoonal
circulations. CEOP will involve the simultaneous or near-simultaneous
collection of observations from several regions around the world. In
particular, it will include: 1) several reference sites in the
continental-scale experimental regions of GEWEX as well as other
regions, 2) extensive field measurements for addressing monsoonal
systems, and 3) validation studies for new satellite systems CEOP will
lead to: 1) better understanding of water and energy fluxes and
reservoirs over specific land areas, 2) progress at better
appreciating the role of land areas in the whole climate system, 3) a
testing of our capabilities to transfer techniques and models between
different GEWEX continental-scale experimental (and other) regions and
to predict water-related parameters and, 4) enhanced understanding of
the land-atmosphere-ocean interactions.
