 Special ICW4 themes:
 3Steps taken by Large-scale Ocean Forecasting Systems to serve the needs of coastal users (papers from GOV “large-scale” groups are particularly welcome)
 4Data and metrics to assess the quality of Regional and Coastal Ocean Forecasting Systems for science and applications (in coordination with the IV-TT and with the EU COST action EOS WG4)
 5Demonstrating the added value of downscaling from the Large-scale systems (in coordination with the IV-TT and with the EU COST action EOS WG4)
 6Using altimetry products in regional/coastal ocean models for assimilation and validation (ARCOM)
