Global Ocean Atmosphere Land System

Project Description
GOALS (Global Ocean-Atmosphere-Land System ) is a project for
predicting seasonal to internannual climate and observing,
modeling, and analysis of the data obtained from the project.

Goals of GOALS:

-Understand global climate variability on a seasonal basis

-determine the spatial and temporal extent to which this variability
is predictable

-develop the observational, theoretical, and computational means to
predict this variability

-make enhanced climate predictions on a seasonal-tointerannual time scales.

Proposed TIme: 1995-2010
