SOOS Capability Working Groups
Capability Working Groups (CWGs) develop important capabilities for SOOS, such as:
Developing and implementing technologies
Improving observational design (e.g., identifying key variables), efficiency and coverage
Developing associated methods for managing and disseminating information
CWGs usually address issues requiring a longer term effort (e.g. months to years). To solve a particular problem or produce a specific product or event within a shorter time frame SOOS Task Teams can be formed.
