There are a number of global systems coordinates by the IOC and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) which are deployed for monitoring climate (the Global Climate Observing System, GCOS), ocean conditions (the Global Ocean Observing System, GOOS) and the weather (World Weather Watch, WWW).These are in turn, in the process of being intergrated into a suite of observing systems that will constitute a global network providing greatly improved spatial resolution of environmental conditions.. As a result of the improved monitoring and data collection, the accurency of forecasting environmental conditions will be substantially improved.Most business and economic forecasting solutions increasingly need input from multiple observing systems. This can now be archieved and will contribute to sustainable development and improved economic and living cionditions.
