The documentation of long-term climate variations and changes is important for several reasons. The early detection of anthropogenicallyinduced climate change, as well as the sensitivity of the climate system to a variety of human and natural causes, rests upon an observing system capable of delivering adequate long-term by: Trenberth K.E.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) The GCOS is a long-term, user-driven operational system capable of providing the comprehensive observations required for monitoring the climate system, for detecting and attributing climate change, for assessing the impacts of climate variability and change, and for supporting research toward improved understanding, modelling and prediction of the climate system. Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) is co-sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (IOC-UNESCO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), and the International Science Council (ISC).

Climate Monitoring at NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information is committed to the monitoring and assessment of the state of the Earth's climate in near real-time, providing decision-makers at all levels of the public and private sectors with data and information on climate .
