ImageTHEME OF THE WORKSHOP:
  • Implementation and Operations Of Indian Ocean Data Buoy Networks and their Applications for Enhancing Regional Predictive Capability
GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP
  • Begin to Build Capacity Within Regional Institutes to Apply New Indian Ocean Observing System (IndOOS) Data, such as from RAMA and others, for Enhanced Predictive Capability for the Region,
  • Demonstrate the Crucial Role of Ocean Observations for Understanding and Predicting Regional Weather, Ocean and climate,
  • Build In-Region Modelling Development Teams (MDT) and Observation Development Teams (ODT), including for the implementation of buoy programmes,
  • Demonstrate the Societal and Economic Benefits of Delivering Enhanced Ocean Observing System Data for Better Informed Decisions,
  • Learn practical implementation aspects for the deployment of operational data buoys at sea, the collection of buoy data, and related data management,
  • Learn Practical Application of Regional Models for Addressing Impacts from Climate Change in the Coastal and Marine Environment,
  • Become Familiar with Tools for Identifying and Accessing Operational Data Streams for Model Assimilation,
  • Validate Model Products from Indian Ocean Observations,
  • Coordinate Regional Institutes for Increasing Western Indian Ocean Observations,
  • Celebrate the IOC’s 50th Anniversary, which began with the 1960 Indian Ocean Expedition.
THEME OF EACH DAY
  • Day 1: Models Need Observational Data to Enhance Their Predictive Capability
  • Day 2: Available Model and Observation Resources
  • Day 3: Societal Applications of Observations and Models
  • Day 4: US IOOS Operational Ocean Prediction System: Examples Applicable for the Western Indian Ocean
  • Day 5: Towards Regional Coordination: Pilot Project for Integration of Data Into Models
