Evaluating the impact of ocean predictions for society is to understand its value and benefit and helps to adjust prediction products for better usage.
Routine impact assessments for user benefit: Conducting routine reanalysis and impact projects for various aspects of ocean observing systems on improving end user experience, and explore impact on other environmental prediction components
New capabilities: Enhancing research value and usefulness for operational prediction centres through targeted collective multi-disciplinary projects on new capabilities for operational oceanography in cooperation with other relevant international research programs.
Outreach – learning: Increase understanding/uptake of ocean prediction science and products by engaging users, e.g. through organising symposia, summer schools, training workshops, and special publications to nurture a growing community of scientists and students on operational oceanography covering ocean observations, ocean prediction science, operational prediction systems, products, end use tools, downstream services and societal benefits.
Outreach – supporting new operational systems: Collaborate with upcoming prediction systems to support the transition from research to operations
