16:10 - 17:30Discussion session 1:  
This will be based around the earlier presentations from participants and would focus on:
1. Alignment with MEP topics in work plan?

Current topics are:
  • Assessment of “fitness for purpose” of current operational oceanography products
  • BGC development phase: ecosystem predictions; downscaling?
  • Impact of biological data assimilation on biogeochemistry dynamics
  • Multi-purpose observing system
2. Ideas for collaboration?

Homework – think about how you can contribute to the task team
