  • Action Plan [2012-2015]
Terms of Reference
  1. Identify principal monitoring needs of the PICES region, and develop approaches to meet these needs, including training and capacity building;
  2. Serve as a forum for coordination and development of inter-regional and international components of the North Pacific Ocean Observing Systems, including the GLOBAL Ocean Observing System, GOOS. Facilitate method development and inter-comparison workshops to promote calibration, standardization and harmonization of data sets;
  3. Contribute to the development of the North Pacific Ecosystem Status Report, advising editors and lead authors on monitoring issues, identifying the need for particular time series and their continuities, the period on which they need to be updated for the FUTURE forecast products, and recommend to Science Board that they endorse the need to establish or maintain particular time series;
  4. Recommend interim meetings to address monitoring needs and PICES–GOOS activities;
  5. Review and advise Science Board on outcomes and annual operations of the North Pacific Continuous Plankton Recorder to include providing technical advice on parameters to be measured and possible linkages to other marine monitoring initiatives and programs in the North Pacific and elsewhere;
  6. Provide annual reports to Science Board and the Secretariat on monitoring activities in relation to PICES;
  7. Interact with TCODE on management issues of monitoring data.
