The main goal of the Coastal Ocean and Shelf Seas Task Team (COSS-TT) is to work in coordination with GOVST and GOOS towards the provision of a sound scientific basis for sustainable multidisciplinary downscaling and forecasting activities in the world coastal oceans. The strategic goal of the TT is to help achieve a truly seamless framework from the global to the coastal/littoral scale.


Important community links:

The COSS-TT has established strong links with the Coastal Altimetry Community to open up opportunities to facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas and to pave the way for routine assimilation of improved coastal altimetry data in coastal models.

Altimetry symposium contributions – Abstract submissions to the “25 Year of Progress in Radar Altimetry - Symposium” are very much invited. COSS-TT and ARCOM representatives should consider submitting an abstract to the Azores symposium in the category "Synergy between Altimetry, other data and models in support of operational oceanography" – please mention in the abstract that this is a COSS-TT/ARCOM abstract. The deadline for submissions is 1 March 2018.

  • Representatives from the GODAE OceanView Science Team and the GOV Patrons' Group
  • Attendees of previous COSS-TT events and local researcher and scientist
