OceanPredict – plans for practical international science collaboration

A science forum and activity platform providing expertise, opportunities for collaboration, and advocacy to its members and partners

OP-CP

 

OceanPredict will be the catalyst group to ensure that all participating entities can provide the best possible description of ocean state in the past, present and future up to seasonal scales that will have the best possible positive impact on its end use.

OceanPredict will define, monitor, coordinate, promote and ensure research actions aimed to advance multi-scale and multidisciplinary ocean analysis and forecasting systems. Additionally, OceanPredict will interlink with partners on both sides of the Operational Oceanography value chain, integrating research advances into operational prediction systems and value adding to maximise ocean observing observation value for research, applications, and for societal and economic benefit.

The OceanPredict framework will operate as a science forum and activity platform providing expertise, opportunities for collaboration, and advocacy to its members and partners OceanPredict will ensure that its members, through collaboration with partners (e.g. WMO, GOOS, Blue Planet, and OceanPredict patron organisations) achieve to develop the full capacity of operational oceanography.

Ocean Predict will facilitate cooperation between research and operational groups which is a key strategic element of the success.
