Third Capacity Building Workshop of the WMO/IOC Data Buoy Cooperation Panel (DBCP) for the North Pacific Ocean and Its Marginal Seas (NPOMS-3) - Application of Regional Ocean Observations for Increasing Society's Understanding and Forecasting of Typhoons

Event Type Training Course
Date(s)(yyyy-mm-dd) Start: 2014-10-06 - End: 2014-10-08
Location Kyoto, Japan
Short Title NPOMS-3
Summary NPOMS-3-Logo The DBCP will convene its Third North Pacific Ocean and Marginal Seas (NPOMS-3), "Application of Regional Ocean Observations for Increasing Society\'s Understanding and Forecasting of Typhoons", 6-8 October 2014 at Japan\'s Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI) in Kyoto as continuation of its fruitful NPOMS-2 Typhoon Workshop in Hangzhou China October 2013. U Kyoto Graduate School in Advanced Integrated Studies (GSAIS) will be a Co-Host with DPRI. NPOMS-3 Co-Sponsors are the DBCP and NOAA\'s Office of Climate Observation (OCO) with Workshop Venue on Uji Campus of University of Kyoto and Workshop Hotel Daiwa Raynet in Kyoto. The Following Goals reflect the needs of this NPOMS-3 Workshop and of the long-term Ocean-Climate Monitoring Capacity for Regional Cyclogenesis and Forecasting:
  • Review recent, on-going and planned regional programs on typhoon and its interaction with the ocean,
  • Discuss new advances in our understanding of the processes and mechanisms of typhoon-ocean interaction,
  • Explore the possibility of regional collaboration to improve typhoon observation and prediction,
  • Demonstrate the crucial role of Western Pacific (WESTPAC) ocean observations, such as for understanding and predicting regional cyclogenesis,
  • Build Regional and National Human, Institutional and Infrastructure Capacity Needed to Acquire, Process and Deliver Socio-Economic Benefits From Ocean Observations,
  • Continue to Learn Practical Implementation Skills for the Deployment of Operational Data Buoys at Sea, the Collection of Buoy Data, and Related Data Management,
  • Continue to Align with Objectives of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) to Deliver Ocean Data to the End-User,
  • Enhance Coordination and Cooperation between the DBCP Task Team for Capacity Building (TT-CB), WMO Regional Associations (RA-II/V) and the IOC Regional Office for WESTPAC.
