Announcements for the joint GOV-WGNE workshop

 

First announcement: First invitation for participation in the GODAE OceanView-WGNE joint workshop (4 May 2012)

Second announcement: Information on White paper contributions and registration of interest (4 September 2012)

Third announcement: Registration and Submission of Abstracts (30 November 2012)

 


FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

Joint workshop

on Short- to Medium-range coupled prediction for the atmosphere-wave-sea-ice-ocean: Status, needs and challenges

First joint workshop of GODAE OcennView & WGNE

NOAA-NCEP, Washington DC

19th - 22nd March 2013

 

The workshop organisers are: Bill Lapenta, EMC/NCEP/NWS/NOAA, U.S. Dept. Of Commerce, Gary Brassington, CAWCR, Bureau of Meteorology, Glenn White, EMC/NCEP/NWS/NOAA, U.S. Dept. Of Commerce

Language: English

Scope: This workshop, endorsed by the GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) and the Working Group for Numerical Experimentation (WGNE), invites members of the atmospheric, ocean, wave and sea-ice community with an interest in developing coupled forecasting systems targeting short- to medium-range prediction for each of the component phenomenon and their related applications.

Objectives: A focus will be given to coupling of the atmosphere-wave-sea-ice-ocean. The forum will review the status, gaps and scientific challenges for the following topics as they relate to coupled prediction: observations, physical parameterisations, dynamical modelling and data assimilation. The leadership group (details below) will prepare a draft community whitepaper against each topic leading up to the meeting with invited contributions and community review.

Participants will be invited to register their interest in participating in the workshop as well as contributing to the whitepapers and associated preparatory material for the workshop. The workshop will focus on providing a concise summary of the status with the majority of the time devoted to open discussions to precisely define the leading scientific and technical challenges, debate their prioritisation and pursue specific action/recommendations for the leading challenges. An emphasis will be given to identifying opportunities for collaboration across the disciplines and sciences and discussion groups and breakouts will be coordinated to facilitate a breadth of expertise. The leadership group and organisers will coordinate the publication of the community whitepapers and workshop summary in relevant journals following the workshops conclusion.

Leadership group:

Observations Chair: Chris Fairall, CIRES/CU
Secretary: Jim Cummings, NRL

Physical parameterisation Chair: Joao Teixeira, JPL/NASA
Secretary: Baylor Fox-Kemper, CIRES/CU

Modelling Chair: Eric Chassignet, COAPS/FSU
Secretary: Paul Sandery, CAWCR/ABOM

Data assimilation Chair: Craig Bishop, NRL
Secretary: Matthew Martin, UK Met Office

Participation: Senior Researchers and experts in their field. In addition, high priority is given to the participation of early career scientists with direct or closely related research interests. The number of attendees is expected to be ~50 (Senior researchers and early career scientists).

Information and Registration: Further information is available from the workshop website and the latest updates will also be posted here. During the second announcement (planned for July 2012) you will be invited to register your interest and contact details for further announcements together with your interest and expertise to contribute to the whitepapers.

Next steps: A registration of interest to attend the workshop and voluntary contributions towards the preparation for the workshop will be called for through the website and outlined in the second announcement, July 2012 Please help us to distribute this message further by forwarding it to other interested groups.

 


SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT

Joint workshop

on Short- to Medium-range coupled prediction for the atmosphere-wave-sea-ice-ocean: Status, needs and challenges

First joint workshop of GODAE OcennView & WGNE

NOAA-NCEP, Washington DC

19th - 22nd March 2013

 

This workshop aims to attract members of the atmospheric, ocean, wave and sea-ice community with an interest in developing coupled forecasting systems targeting short- to medium-range prediction to review the status of research and to debate the potential benefits, gaps and priorities for making advances. The workshop has been endorsed by the GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) and the Working Group for Numerical Experimentation (WGNE).

Registration of interest: We now invite you to complete a workshop survey so we can establish the level of interest, create a mailing list for future communications and support the workshop preparations.

The link to the survey is: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1004345/Joint-GODAE-OceanView-WGNE-Workshop-on-Short-to-Medium-range-coupled-prediction-for-the-atmosphere-wave-sea-ice-ocean-Washington-DC-19-22-March-2013

It should not take longer than 5-8 minutes to complete the survey so please provide your input. The deadline for survey submissions is the 17 September 2012.

White paper: The leadership group and organisers will coordinate the publication of the community whitepapers and a workshop summary in relevant journals following the workshops conclusion. A strawman whitepaper for each topic will be circulated to all potential contributors/reviewers (as per the survey responses) by the end of September.

Financial support: We hope to be able to provide financial support for a limited number of participants. Please indicate on the survey if you are likely to apply for travel support. Specific instructions will be outlined in the call for registration announcement.

Registration will be opened in November.

Further information is available from the workshop website and the latest updates will also be posted here: https://www.godae-oceanview.org/outreach/meetings-workshops/coupled-prediction-workshop-gov-wgne-2013/

REGISTRATION & ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

THIRD ANNOUNCEMENT

Joint workshop

on Short- to Medium-range coupled prediction for the atmosphere-wave-sea-ice-ocean: Status, needs and challenges

First joint workshop of GODAE OcennView & WGNE

NOAA-NCEP, Washington DC

19 - 21 March 2013

 

This workshop aims to attract members of the atmospheric, ocean, wave and sea-ice community with an interest in developing coupled forecasting systems targeting short- to medium-range prediction to review the status of research and to debate the potential benefits, gaps and priorities for making advances. The workshop has been endorsed by the GODAE OceanView Science Team (GOVST) and the Working Group for Numerical Experimentation (WGNE).

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WORKSHOP HAS BEEN SHORTENED TO 3 DAYS.

 

Registration for the joint workshop is now open (30 November 2012). To register please complete the workshop registration form, which will also allow the submission of abstracts. The workshop is free, but costs for lunches and dinner will be offered on a self-pay basis.

Call for abstracts: Please submit your abstract (abstract title) with the registration form and assign it to one of the session topics: (1) Observations; (2) Modelling; (3) Parameterisation and (4) Data assimilation (please add relevant number(s) into “co-author” text field). Please follow the instruction for the preparation of abstracts before submitting. Limited capacity: Due to high interest in the workshop, participation will be limited, but it is hoped that all registration can be accepted.

Poster sessions/ agenda: The agenda includes 3 poster sessions and a few slots for invited speakers. Posters session will include short presentation for authors to introduce their work (1-2 slides per person). Please check the preliminary agenda.
