At the GODAE OceanView Symposium "OceanPredict '19" you can learn about the latest advances in operational oceanography, dive into the various science disciplines involved in producing ocean analyses and forecasts, and take part in discussions on the requirements for ocean forecasting products and services.
Ocean prediction systems depend critically on satellite and in-situ observations, which must be accessible and readily available for near-real time assimilation by GOV systems. Cooperation between research and operational groups is a key strategic element of GODAE OceanView.
Through its support of national ocean forecasting systems, GOV supports the delivery of reliable, timely, accessible and comprehensive ocean products to intermediate- and end-users.
Informing academics, industry, governments and society about ocean forecasting capabilities and benefits
Investment in global, regional and coastal ocean forecasting systems to benefit society
GOV is working towards the improvement of coastal water management, marine ecosystems, and the impact and mitigation of climate change
Ocean predictions have a wide range of benefits ranging from maritime safety and pollution forecasting, national security, oil & gas industry, fisheries management, marine environmental monitoring, weather forecasting, seasonal and climate prediction, ocean research and coastal and shelf-sea forecasting.
About OceanPredict '19
Ocean scientists, ocean observation specialists, industry representatives, service providers and users of ocean data & products from across the local, national & international operational oceanography community will gather in Halifax for the GODAE OceanView Symposium, OceanPredict ‘19.
The event will present high-level speakers providing expert insight into the latest ocean research & development efforts, products and services and applications, and offers participants to engage in special science splinter meetings, poster sessions, booth exhibitions and discussion rounds to explore and define the direction of future operational oceanography.
GODAE OceanView continues to provided coordination and leadership in consolidating and improving global and regional ocean analysis and forecasting systems. The Symposium objectives include:
- Getting a common picture of future development in all aspects of Operational Oceanography
- Motivating intergrated international community projects to further advance science and benefits of Operational Oceanography
- Enhancing end-user awareness of present capacity and providing collaborative output of future in operational oceanography and end-user engagement
