COSS-TT International Coordination Meeting 5 (ICM5) (3-7 April 2017)

The full agenda is available as pdf - latest update 28 March 2017

 

The workshop is planned to run for 3 full and 2-half days, covering four themes:

 Meeting topics / themes:
 1Science in support to coastal ocean forecasting with the following special themes in particular: representation of coastal upwellings and river plumes in models, including interdisciplinary aspects (bgc, sediments).
 2Coastal model assessment, with the following special theme in particular: comparison of large-scale and downscaled coastal systems with the same set of metrics (as agreed in Lisbon).
 3Altimetry for regional/coastal ocean models, with the following special theme in particular: processes influencing coastal sea-level dynamics, realistic modelling of those processes (ARCOM community session)
 4Operational and pre-operational ocean forecasting systems, with the following special themes in particular: coastal forecasting system description and updates; quality and performance of large-scale ocean forecasting systems in the coastal areas.
