Advances in Operational Oceanography : Expending Europe's ocean observing and forecasting capacity
Venue: Virtual edition
The EuroGOOS international conference takes place every three years. The conference provides a forum for a broad range of implementers and users of operational oceanography services, including marine scientists and technologists, private companies, and policymakers. The conference reviews the present ocean monitoring and forecasting capacities and oceanographic services, and identifies new science and technology priorities. It facilitates dialogue, experience sharing and future planning with both European and international partners and stakeholders, towards a more coordinated response to global challenges and societal needs related to seas and oceans.
Themes and topics:
A. In-situ and remote sensing observations: towards a European Ocean Observing System (EOOS) in the framework of the UN Ocean Decade
Coordination of ocean observing capacities at regional and global scale;
Use of research infrastructures to support oceanography;
In-situ observations: present and emerging technologies, new biological and chemical observations; climate observations;
New concept of “transversal support infrastructure” for research infrastructures including metrology;
Data management: harmonization at European and global levels;
Satellite remote sensing: new products, new sensors, new missions;
How European Research Infrastructures will help to build a strong European network of observing system operators.
B. Ocean modelling and forecasting: extending and improving predictability: Global, regional, shelf and coastal forecasting systems, towards the Digital Twin of the Ocean
Assessment of forecasting skill, metrics;
Data assimilation: new sources, new schemes;
Ecosystem models: present and future developments;
Next generation ocean models: coupling atmosphere, ocean and biochemistry;
Combining models and data for environmental assessments.
C. Meeting end-user needs and supporting marine development
New oceanographic products and services for users;
Building an interface with users through a structured collection of and dialogue on their requirements and a service assessment process;
Promoting the use and uptake of operational oceanographic products;
Responsible Research and Innovation in European oceanography: ensuring stakeholder co-design and maximize use and efficiency;
Fostering links to industry to enhance European competitiveness through new and existing ocean businesses.
