GODAE OceanView Special Issue publication in the Journal of Operational Oceanography

Volume 8, supplement 1, May 2015

Volume 8, supplement 2, October 2015


Part 1 & part 2 of the GODAE OceanView (GOV) Special Issue have now been published in the Journal of Operational Oceanography (JOO). It illustrates GOV’s progress in the past 5 years and highlights its achievements. The presented papers cover a variety of themes related to GOV, i.e. observing systems; global, regional and coastal forecasting systems; data assimilation; impact of observations on ocean forecasts; forecasting system intercomparisons; biogeochemistry/ eco-system modelling; coupled systems, services & applications and an outlook to the future of international operational oceanography.

The GOV guest editors are Mike, Bell, Andreas Schiller, Neville Smith, Zdenka Willis and Keith Haines.

Part 1 and part 2 of the Special Issue includes the following papers:
