Ocean boundary current systems are key components of the climate system, are hometo highly productive ecosystems, and have numerous societal impacts. Establishmentof a global network of boundary current observing systems is a critical part of ongoingdevelopment of the Global Ocean Observing System. The characteristics of boundarycurrent systems are reviewed, focusing on scientific and societal motivations forsustained observing. Techniques currently used to observe boundary current systemsare reviewed, followed by a census of the current state of boundary current observingsystems globally. The next steps in the development of boundary current observingsystems are considered, leading to several specific recommendations.
