Scope: The scientific development of ocean models and global coupled prediction systems at resolutions of order 1/12 ° for seasonal to decadal prediction and short-range weather forecasting.


  • Identification of expected improvements to processes and performance
  • Clarification of the key choices for ocean model configurations and parametrisations
  • Development of coherent designs and collaborations for experiments and diagnostics

Outcomes: A short “white” paper covering the issues and recommendations will be submitted for publication following the meeting.

Format: For each objective/theme there will be invited and selected oral presentations, a poster session and a discussion of issues with chair and moderators.


This workshop is being organised and supported by

the Met Office, the University of Reading and the National Oceanographic Centre, Southampton (UK)
