The core of the GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) consists of scientists leading the scientific development of the major ocean analysis and forecasting centres in the world, generating real-time operational ocean forecasts, hindcasts and reanalysis. The primary purpose of this team is to accelerate the improvement and exploitation of the systems through exchange of information and expertise and the coordination of joint assessments. The activities of the Science Team are focused on:
The science team is co-chaired by Andreas Schiller (CSIRO, Australia) and Fraser Davidson (DFO, Canada).
The science team includes experts leading the scientific development of the major national ocean analysis and forecasting systems, of specialist oceanographers implementing and improving these systems (expertise in observations, modelling and data assimilation) and representatives of key observing systems (e.g. Argo, GHRSST and OST science teams).
