Annual Science Team (GOVST) meetings

The GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) provides a forum for international collaboration of the main operational and research institutions (national groups) involved in global ocean analysis and forecasting. The primary purpose of the team is to accelerate the improvement and exploitation of these systems through exchange of information and expertise and the coordination of joint assessments.

The science team consists of scientists leading the scientific development of the major national ocean analysis and forecasting systems, those implementing and improving the system (expertise for this area includes observation, modelling and data assimilation) as well as representatives of key observing systems (e.g. Argo, GHRSST and OST science teams) and meets annually.
