3.5: Small Scales

Theme 3 – Splinter 5
Abstracts of session 3.5 Chaired by Matthieu Le Henaff

The overarching goal of the Theme 3 session is to bring forward the latest developments in ocean modeling and forecasting from a combined physical and biogeochemical perspective. The first two splinter sessions emphasize ocean, atmosphere, and ice forecasts and nowcasts. The third session focuses on biogeochemical and ecological applications. The fourth deals with the latest advances in sea ice modeling and prediction. Finally, the last session emphasizes the small scales.

5.5: Global and Regional Prediction Systems III

Theme 5 – Splinter 5
Abstracts of session 5.5 Chaired by Laurent Bertino and Marina Tonani

This is one of three consecutive sessions showcasing global and regional prediction systems being developed or run operationally. This will include system descriptions, latest developments in the use of observations, and the practical considerations of running increasingly complicated operational systems so as to produce model outputs which are useful to users in a timely manner.  The last of these sessions has an emphasis on regional systems and particularly those being used to provide products for the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service.
