The GOVST-IV report meeting report 2012

The 4th meeting of the GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST-IV) took place at the Mirador Hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from the 5-9 November 2012. The GODAE OceanView Patrons’ Group met separately during on the 7th November in a telephone-conference. The meeting included the science team meeting and separate task tean meetings.

The GOVST-IV offered separate Task Teams meetings on day “1”, with the main meeting starting on day “2”. This report does not include notes from these TT meetings, but the presentations made during the first/third day are available from the Task Team presentation website.

TT progress: A review of GODAE OceanView activities showed good progress of the IV-TT, OSEval-TT and COSS-TT, particularly in view of reanalysis intercomparisons coordinated with GSOP-CLIVAR and collaborations with a large number of regional and coastal systems. Progress with the OIS (Observing Impact Statements) has been slow due to the high effort of undertaking OSEs, but a few more systems have now confirmed to be taking part. The COSS-TT is preparing a second TT workshop in February 2013 with wide external participation. SMRCP-TT is organising a “coupled prediction” workshops in March 2013 which has already received strong interested. The MEP-TT is planning a further TT meeting in May/June 2013 and are finalising their plans.

Patrons Group feedback: The Patrons’ Group meeting confirmed that the GOV Symposium & review will go ahead in Maryland / Washington on 4-8 November 2013. Rick Spinrad will chair the review panel .

Symposium & review: Following the agreement to organise a GODAE OceanView Review in November 2013, a number of organisation committees have been set up and work is in progress to plan out the events in details. The GOV Review will be organised during the same week as the symposium and a review panel members have already been identified. Due to the organisation of the GOV symposium and review the next GOVST meeting will be held in the first half of 2014. We have confirmation from our Chinese members that they will be hosting the next meeting in Beijing or another location in China, depending on availability.
