CARRASCO, Jorge F. Stations network for atmospheric observation in Antarctica, an international collaboration for climate change research. Anales Instituto Patagonia (Chile) [online]. 2012, vol.40, n.1, pp. 57-63. ISSN 0718-686X.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) was established in 1992 by the World Meteorological Organization, the United Nation Environmental Program, the International Oceanography Commission and the International Council Scientific Union. This is as result of the Decision 11/CP.9 of the Fifth Con-ference of Parties of the Framework Convention for Climate Change of United Nation. GCOS is based on the compromise of the countries in maintaining the observing stations and providing the data. With this, GCOS accomplishes the goal of providing to the research community with a basic observing network for monitoring the climate system that will allow detecting the changes and responses of all components of the system. Antarctica is one of the regions for which GCOS has been essential for the observation and climate change research.

Palabras clave : GCOS; climate observation; climate system; climate change.
