The WMO's Global Cryosphere Watch (GCW) fosters international coordination and partnerships between scientific and operational communities with the goal of meeting the cryosphere data and information need of Members adn partners, in support of Earth system monitoring, modeling and prediction. GCW operates under the remit of the Infrastructure Commission (INFCOM).
The Executive Council Panel on Polar and High Mountain Observation, Research and Services (EC-PHORS) is the body of WMO tasked by EC-73 to ensure that WMO continues to play a meaningful role on overseeing, coordinating and monitoring how polar and high-mountain observations, research, services and policies are developed and implemented within and externally to WMO, in response of significant changes in the polar and high mountain environments.
Climate change is the defining challenge of our time. This important document by the United Nations and global partner organizations, prepared under the auspices of the Science Advisory Group of the Climate Action Summit, features the latest critical data and scientific findings on the climate crisis.
Climate describes the average weather conditions for a particular location and over a long period of time. We study the climate, its variations and extremes, and its influences on a variety of activities including human health, safety and welfare to support evidence-based decision-making on how to best adapt to a changing climate.
The cryosphere impacts all nations, their people and their economy. The cryosphere provides some of the most useful indicators of climate variability and change. Improved cryospheric monitoring and integration of that monitoring is essential to fully assess, predict, and adapt to variability and change in the Earth’s weather, climate and water cycles.
