Abstract: The European Commission strongly supports the development of GEOSS and of Blue Planet through a number of dedicated research projects and initiatives. GEOWOW (www.geowow.eu) is one such EU-funded research project, promoting Geo Interoperability across Weather, Ocean ecosystems, and Water run-off. GEOWOW has a strong connection with Blue Planet through one of its leading partners, the International Oceanographic Commission (IOC) that is also one of the key leaders of Blue Planet. GEOWOW supports the IOC in developing the information systems and tools, including cloud-based tools, necessary to make a global assessment of the oceans as part of the Trans-Water Assessment Programme. It also develops further the brokering framework necessary to bridge gaps across the information systems and capacity of different disciplines. The following section discusses this particular contribution by GEOWOW to the interoperability of ocean information systems and data.
