GODAE OceanView International School "New Frontiers in Operational Oceanography"

The implementation of operational oceanography in the past 15 years has contributed to understanding state of the art scientific problems and has also provided many societal benefits and has led to many countries adopting a formal roadmap for providing ocean forecasts. Following on from the GODAE OceanView international schools held in France (Chassignet and Verron, 2006) and in Australia (Schiller and Brassington, 2011), this school will bring together senior experts and young researchers (pre- and post-doctorate) from across the world and expose them to the latest research in oceanography, the challenges of multi-platform observing systems, real time data availability, integration and model assimilation, and specifically how it will impact operational oceanography. In addition to formal lectures, shorter talks by experts in the field will acquaint the participants with a wide range of applications.

The school will be held in Mallorca (Spain) 2-13 October 2017, and will be co-organised by IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB), SOCIB, IGE, COAPS and GODAE OceanView. The school is sponsored by IMEDEA, EGU, UIB, EUMETSAT, ESA, NASA, CNES, CMEMS, EuroMarine, SOCIB and others.
