The Joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology

Scientific and Technical Workshop at JCOMM-IV : Call for Papers (closing date 30 March)

The Workshop will take place on 24 and 25 May, with the general theme of ‘Improving Marine and Ocean Data and Products for Science and Society: the role of JCOMM’. Comprising invited lectures, 20-minute oral presentations and posters, the workshop will be split into four sessions covering the following topics:

• Reducing uncertainty in ocean data and products

• Improved data accessibility and management as the link between observations and services

• Marine meteorological and ocean prediction, services, applications and user interfaces

• JCOMM contributions to climate services

In each of these sessions, which will be in English only, the focus will be on learning from recent experience and on looking forward. Limited financial support is available and will be made available to presenters from developing countries whose presentations are, in the opinion of the Selection Committee, of high relevance and scientific excellence.
