CLIVAR GSOP/GOV - Ocean Reanalyses Intercomparison WS

Event date(s): Monday 1st July 2013  –  Wednesday 3rd July 2013

Location: ECMWF

The CLIVAR GSOP/GODAE Ocean View Ocean Reanalyses Intercomparison Workshop will be held at ECMWF 1-3 July 2013.

Several ocean reanalyses products are produced worldwide with different purposes and methodologies. The intercomparison exercise aims at understanding the consistency and differences in the products under different metrics, evaluation of fit-for-purpose products, and exploitation of this variety of reanalysis using the ensemble approach to target different areas:

  • Routine monitoring of indices of societal relevance with uncertainty estimates using the ensemble.
  • Production of robust data sets for understanding the ocean and for initializing and evaluating decadal prediction and IPCC models.
  • Recommendations for future reanalyses production by identifying the weakness of existing approaches and the suitability of the ensemble approach.

This workshop is by invitation only.
