Description: The Coordinated Enhanced ObservingPeriod (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. CEOP Enhanced Observing Period 3
(EOP-3) covers the time period from 1 October 2002 through 30 September 2003.

The Committee on Earth Observation Satellite (CEOS) agencies use their best
efforts to contribute to CEOP and in particular, to cooperate the CEOP
satellite data integration and the field campaigns at reference sites.
Some of the ultimate goals of these groups are related to more accurate
determination of the water cycle in association with climate variability and
change as well as baseline data on the impacts of this variability on water
resources. CEOP will enable us to address such crucial issues through a
'hands-on', focused examination of the water cycle over a particular time
