Pierre De Mey-Frémaux – COSS-TT

Senior Research Scientist at LEGOS/CNRS - FRANCE

I am a researcher.  Since the beginning of my career, I have had the opportunity to participate in many ways in the scientific support of the development of operational oceanography, civil and military, national and international, offshore and coastal.  I strongly believe that ocean forecasting is a science (Pinardi et al., 2017 gives an epistemological/historical perspective, which includes several of my contributions).  The scientific approach is essential for operational forecasting, because it is a quality assurance.  A scientific deficit is a major risk for an operational project.

Since 2006, throughout GODAE, OceanView and OceanPredict, I have been leading, then co-leading with Villy Kourafalou, the Coastal and Shelf Seas working group, to become the Coastal Oceans and Shelf Seas Task Team (OceanPredict COSS-TT).  We hold International Coordination Meetings every approx. 18 months, covering all aspects from science to operational systems and applications in the regional and coastal oceans.
