MEAP-TT workshop

Event date(s): Tuesday 23rd June 2015  –  Thursday 25th June 2015

Location: Halifax, Canada

The MEOPAR/GOV Marine Ecosystem Analysis and Predition (MEAP) Workshop

and the

2nd MEAP-TT meeting

is being organised on the

23 -24 June 2015  (MEOPAR/GOV, 2-day workshop, open)


25 June 2015 (MEAP-TT, half-day meeting by invitation only)

in Halifax, Canada


The Halifax workshop will provide the opportunity to share and discuss directions for biogeochemical applications of operational oceanography. The two-day workshop is organized around the following four workshop sessions:

  1. Data assimilation applications for biological/biogeochemical models
  2. Downscaling from global to regional biological/biogeochemical applications
  3. Assessment of biological/biogeochemical model complexity needed for operational applications
  4. End-user perspectives on requirements on biological/biogeochemical model applications

The subsequent half-day TT meeting will provide the opportunity for GOV operational groups to discuss the strategic direction and work plan of the team."

The focus of this Task Team is on developing the underpinning science and tools which will eventually enable full integration of biogeochemistry and, ultimately, ecosystems in existing physical operational systems. Its mission is to contribute to the improvement of the biogeochemical observing systems, assimilation and modelling of Essential Biogeochemical Variables (EBV) and bridging the gap with end-users. This is an area of growing interest.

The workshop is sponsored (partially) by the Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network, Canada (MEOPAR)
