The Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing Program supports half of the world's ocean observations.

NOAA's Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program supports ocean-based, or in situ observing research, and the sustained global ocean observing system. Our mission, vision, and general overview can be found on our About Us page. GOMO's activities are guided by input from our community partners, our Strategic Plan and external Committee on Ocean Observing.
