This workshop is organised by OceanPredict and EuroSea “Improving and integrating the European Ocean Observing and Forecasting System”, funded through the European Commission research funding programme Horizon 2020. The workshop will link EuroSea with the international activities of OceanPredict through some of its specialised task teams, in support of connecting, exploring and advancing observation and ocean prediction efforts in a global context. Furthermore, the workshop is intended to contribute to the UN Decade initiative through interaction with Decade science programmes, GOOS and other science partners.

The EuroSea/OceanPredict workshop on “Ocean Prediction and Observing System Design” will take place from 29th June to 1st July 2022. Organised by EuroSea and OceanPredict, this workshop will be held in person at the Met Office (Exeter, UK) with virtual access for participants who are unable to attend physically.

This open workshop will link global and regional ocean observation and prediction communities, providing an opportunity to gather representatives to exchange information on issues, progress, and future outlooks.

The EuroSea/OceanPredict Workshop on Ocean Prediction and Observing System Design is now inviting submissions of abstracts for one or more of the four workshop sessions:

  • Session 1: OSEs & OSSEs in support of observing system design
  • Session 2: Extreme marine events – observing, modelling, forecasting and user accessibility
  • Session 3: Coastal Ocean: Modelling, observing system design and product utility
  • Session 4: EuroSea & OceanPredict – in support of the UN Ocean Decade

Please visit the website for more session details.
