The core work of DOOS will be conducted by the Project’s four Task Teams (TT). These groups will liaise with external, international groups including the appropriate Panels and members of the GOOS community. They will also take guidance from the DOOS Steering Committee.
Presently the DOOS Project has aligned its activities similar to the GOOS Framework for Ocean Observing. As such there is an initial focus on the Physical, Biogeochemical, and Biological observations taking place and opportunities for integration.
