The essential elements of GODAE are observational networks, models and estimation tools. In the GODAE context, these elements are inextricably linked and integrated, with obvious interdependencies. The generation of globally consistent fields of the ocean state through the synthesis of multivariate satellite and in situ data streams with models, is an identifying characteristic of GODAE.

In order to make GODAE work within its set aim and scope an organised structure of data process and delivery system has been established. The schematic below shows the context in which GODAE operates and which other interactions are implemented in the overall process of delivery of assimilation products to mid- and end-users. The functional components of this structure are: (Please click links on map for further information)
