The GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) is created with the mission to define, monitor and promote actions aimed at coordinating and integrating research associated with multi-scale and multi-disciplinary ocean analysis and forecasting systems, thus enhancing the value of GODAE OceanView outputs for research and applications. Over the next decade the science team will provide international coordination and leadership in:

  • The consolidation and improvement of global and regional analysis and forecasting systems
  • The progressive development and scientific testing of the next generation of systems covering biogeochemical and ecosystems and extending from the open ocean into shelf seas and coastal waters
  • The exploitation of the capability in other applications (weather forecasting, seasonal and decadal prediction, climate change detection and its coastal impacts, etc.)
  • The assessment of the contribution of the various components of the observing system and the scientific guidance for improved design and implementation of the ocean observing system
