Bulletin nº Vol 65 (1) - 2016
Publish Date: 21 March 2016
Global observation of the Earth’s atmosphere, ocean and land is essential for identifying climate variability and change, and for understanding their causes.

Levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached another new record high, according to the World Meteorological Organization. This continuing long-term trend means that future generations will be confronted with increasingly severe impacts of climate change, including rising temperatures, more extreme weather, water stress, sea level rise and disruption to marine and land ecosystems.

The Eighteenth World Meteorological Congress (Cg-18) articulated a clear and urgent need for innovation to deliver better and more timely weather, climate and water services to stakeholders. The term is mentioned 58 times in the Cg-18 report – four times more often than in the report from the previous Congress. The Cg-18 report expresses the need to support, promote, foster and accelerate innovation.

Record greenhouse gas concentrations mean further warming The tell-tale signs and impacts of climate change – such as sea level rise, ice loss and extreme weather – increased during 2015-2019, which is set to be the warmest five-year period on record, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere have also increased to record levels, locking in the warming trend for generations to come.

WMO’s Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) Programme is marking its 30th anniversary this year. The programme, which embraces about 100 countries, aims at forging an integrated global understanding of atmospheric composition and change. It coordinates observations across local to global scales, driving high quality and high-impact science while co-producing society relevant products and services.
