In recent years we have been building our knowledge of changes within the oceans through international cooperation and collaboration, for example, by re-occupation of World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE); our findings were cited in the Fifth Assessment Report from the IPCC. To implement plans to make all measurement values used in climate change research completely SI-traceable, the General Conference on Weights and Measures has been providing advice to relevant institutions. Through measures such as promulgating the use of standard materials for nutrients, we are making progress in comparability of data, research that depends on this comparability, and R&D on standard materials. However, the guidelines used for measurement and analysis do not seem to be keeping up with this progress. The Oceanographic Observation Guidelines published by the Japan Meteorological Agency in 1999 are relatively widely used in Japan, but their content is not always completely up.....
