The Global Temperature and Salinity Profile Programme (GTSPP)
NOTE: GTSPP's Connection with Global Climate Observing System (GCOS): The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) recognizes the GTSPP as one of the international operational activities that provide essential, sub-surface climate variables of temperature and salinity profile data. GTSPP provides timely and complete data with documented quality flags and implements internationally agreed quality control and overall management of ocean data fully in accordance with the GCOS action plan.
- 25 June 2018: The Japan Meteorological Agency operates the GTSPP Data Product Centre (GDPC). The GDPC's Monthly Report for April 2018 is available. Next issue will be launched on or about 30 July 2018.
- 11 June 2018: The Report and presentation slides of the Fourth Session of the Joint IODE-JCOMM Steering Group for the GTSPP is now available.
- 23 January 2017: The Report and presentation slides of the Third Session of the Joint IODE-JCOMM Steering Group for the GTSPP is now available.
