Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period

Project Description
The Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period (CEOP) was originally
envisioned as a major step towards bringing together the research
activities in the GEWEX Hydrometeorology Panel (GHP) and is being
developed and implemented within the Global Energy and Water Cycle
Experiment (GEWEX) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
Although initiated and managed within GEWEX, the implementation of
CEOP requires close and strong co-operation across other projects and
related activities within the WCRP; in particular, the Climate
Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) study, the emerging Climate
and Cryosphere (CliC) project, and the joint World Meteorology
Organization (WMO) Commission for Atmospheric Sciences/Joint
Scientific Committee WCRP Working Group on Numerical Experimentation
(WGNE). It has also been endorsed by the Integrated Global Observing
Strategy Partnership (IGOS-P) as the first element of the IGOS Water
Cycle Theme.
