The Workshop report is now available from this website (05 March 2014).



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. The TT Workplan is included in the main GOV Workplan available on the GOV web site and updated annually.
