COSS-TT online meeting (2), April 2022
8th meeting of the COSS-TT: International Coordination Meeting (2nd online meeting)
This meeting will replace an originally planned face-to-face meeting scheduled for Montreal.
The virtual meeting on 12 + 13 April 2022 (Tue and Wed) will cover all aspects of previous COSS-TT meetings, of course in a much tighter format:
- COSS system updates and presentations on selected Research Themes
- Review of Task Team membership and international coordination (incl. meeting format/frequency)
- Upcoming interactions with UN Decade related activities (e.g. CoastPredict, ForeSea and other Decade programmes).
Both, Task Team members and the broader COSS community, are invited to attend and consider submitting abstracts.
- Task Team meeting
- 12 & 13 April 2022, Online (MS Team) by invitation
- Start at 12-15 UTC
Please download/open the latest agenda here.
Latest update 12 April 2022
The themes covered by this meeting are listed below. When submitting an abstract please match it to one or more of these themes. The registration and abstract submission form will provide for this.
Theme 1 – Science in support of Coastal Ocean forecasting: scientific advances in Coastal and Regional Ocean Forecasting Systems (R/COFS), including process understanding and interactions (land-sea, atmosphere-ocean and currents-waves), model evaluation, probabilistic approaches and observing system evaluation (such as Observing System Simulation Experiments).
Theme 2 – Coastal and Regional (pre-)operational ocean forecasting systems and applications: system descriptions and updates; requirements for real-time operations and forecasts (incl. model details, open boundary conditions, river outflow, atmospheric forcings); assimilation and verification in those systems; coastal forecasting system applications, user- and citizen-oriented products and uptake in coastal regions.
Theme 3 – Seamless integration between Coastal and Regional systems (R/COFS under COSS-TT) and Large scale systems (LOFS under OceanPredict): nesting and downscaling, comparison of solutions of nested (R/COFS) and outer (LOFS) models over the same domain, advances in seamless integration of systems and demonstration of value added through one-way and two-way nesting.
Theme 4 – Synergy between altimetry and modelling in coastal regions: up-to-date and future altimeter products presentation; connectivity with in situ; data assimilation and modelling use cases for regional/coastal oceans; coastal/off-shore signal continuity.
Registration and abstract submission for the 2nd online COSS-TT meeting are both done through the form below. If you only want to register but not submit an abstract, just leave the respective submission form part blank. There is no registration fee.
|Abstract submission deadline||25 March 2022|
|Registration deadline||8 April 2022|
If you want to update your registration or submission you will have to register again. All questions marked with * are mandatory.
Abstract submissions and registrations are now closed.
