EURAMET, the association responsible for coordinating the integrated metrology community in Europe, has recently established European Metrology Networks (EMNs) to support its aim to bring high-quality scientific research and coordinated metrological services to meet the rapidly advancing needs of different stakeholders for metrology. The EMN for Climate and Ocean Observation is one of the initial six EMNs and has been set up as a European coordination body to support the global effort to bring rigorous metrological discipline into the observations that underpin our understanding of the climate and the oceans. This paper describes the network, its activity so far, and its plans.
