3.1: Forecasts and nowcasts from models of ocean, atmosphere, and ice I

Theme 3 – Splinter 1 Abstract of session 3.1 Chaired by Lars Hole

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.
