[NEAR-GOOS Area and Member] As a regional pilot project of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), the North-East Asian Regional GOOS (NEAR-GOOS) is being implemented by China, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation. NEAR-GOOS is intended to provide a regional framework for gathering and distributing oceanographic data in the North-East Asian region, in enabling participating countries to make better use of their investments in ocean observations and research towards the establishment of the Global Ocean Observing System. Oceanographic data and relevant products generated within NEAR-GOOS system will be open at free cost through electronic communications for various forms of marine uses.

The oceanographic/marine meteorological data in the NEAR-GOOS region are maintained at the Regional Delayed Mode Data Base (RDMDB) operated by the Japan Oceanographic Data Center (JODC), which is responsible for the Regional Data Center for WESTPAC. The Regional Delayed Mode Data Base receives the data from the Regional Real Time Data Base (RRTDB) 30 days after they are collected. The Regional Delayed Mode Data Base also collects the data/products from the National Delayed Mode Data Bases (NDMDB) except those collected through Regional Real Time Data Base.[Figure of NEAR-GOOS Data Flow]
