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.
