The Mediterranean Operational Network for the Global Ocean Observing System (MONGOOS) has been established in 2012 to further develop operational oceanography in the Mediterranean Sea. MONGOOS comprises the previous activities of MOON and MEDGOOS. MONGOOS is promoting partnerships and capacity building for GOOS in the Mediterranean Sea, creating a continuous working framework with EuroGOOS and GOOS Africa in order to define common roles and activities in the Mediterranean Sea, and foster collaboration with Black Sea GOOS and global ocean GOOS initiatives.

MONGOOS contains information on operational oceanography systems developed by MonGOOS members. It provides direct connection to in-situ and forecasts systems and satellite data. While in-situ observations are limited to EU Member Countries, Montenegro and Israel, forecasts are available within the entire Mediterranean basin.
