But more than the papers, TOGA left new institutions: The IRI now exists, National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) changed its name and function to include climate prediction, there are a number of prediction centers throughout the United States, and the rest of the world, and the TAO array is undergoing transition to the first operational oceanography array in support of prediction. There are new institutions to look at the applications of ENSO predictions. Much of this is described in NRC (1996) cited above.
