Participants are invited to submit abstracts revisiting the flagship themes of the EuroGOOS conferences in the light of recent developments in ocean observations in Europe:
A. In-situ and remote sensing observations: towards a European Ocean Observing System (EOOS) in the framework of the UN Ocean Decade
- Coordination of ocean observing capacities at regional and global scale;
- Use of research infrastructures to support oceanography;
- In-situ observations: present and emerging technologies, new biological and chemical observations; climate observations;
- New concept of “transversal support infrastructure” for research infrastructures including metrology;
- Data management: harmonization at European and global levels;
- Satellite remote sensing: new products, new sensors, new missions;
- How European Research Infrastructures will help to build a strong European network of observing system operators.
B. Ocean modelling and forecasting: extending and improving predictability: Global, regional, shelf and coastal forecasting systems, towards the Digital Twin of the Ocean:
- Assessment of forecasting skill, metrics;
- Data assimilation: new sources, new schemes;
- Ecosystem models: present and future developments;
- Next generation ocean models: coupling atmosphere, ocean and biochemistry;
- Combining models and data for environmental assessments.
C. Meeting end-user needs and supporting marine development
- New oceanographic products and services for users;
- Building an interface with users through a structured collection of and dialogue on their requirements and a service assessment process;
- Promoting the use and uptake of operational oceanographic products;
- Responsible Research and Innovation in European oceanography: ensuring stakeholder co-design and maximize use and efficiency;
- Fostering links to industry to enhance European competitiveness through new and existing ocean businesses.
