We would like to let you know that applications are now open for the Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment (GODAE) OceanView International School "New Frontiers in Operational Oceanography", which will be held on 2-13 October 2017, in Mallorca, Spain. The international school for observing, assimilating and forecasting the ocean is a two week program offered to early career scientists, professionals and students on the current state of the art in operational oceanography and related advances in the ocean sciences. The courses will include topics covering the leading edge science in ocean observing systems, as well as the latest methods and techniques for analysis, data assimilation and ocean modeling.
Deadline for applying is February 28, 2017.
The implementation of operational oceanography in the past 15 years has provided many societal benefits and has led to many countries adopting a formal roadmap for providing ocean forecasts. Following on from the GODAE OceanView international schools held in France (Chassignet and Verron, 2006) and in Australia (Schiller and Brassington, 2011), this school will bring together senior experts and young researchers (pre-and post-doctorate) from across the world and expose them to the latest research in oceanography, specifically how it will impact operational oceanography. In addition to formal lectures, shorter talks by experts in the field, including a number from the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) Physics and Climate Panel, will acquaint the participants with a wide range of applications.
This international school is one of the main educational activities supported by GODAE OceanView. The event then is planned to take place in Mallorca, Spain in Fall 2017 under the auspices of IMEDEA and SOCIB. IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB) is a joint research center overseen by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB).
School content and application
This school is intended for a broad international audience: PhD students, postdoctoral scientists, and maybe young academics, for a total of 60 to 70 attendees, not including the speakers and organizers. The attendees will have a background in meteorology and/or oceanography. This school is offered to early career scientists, professionals and students in the current state of the art in operational oceanography and related advances in the ocean sciences.
The students will be selected based on qualifications (career status and achievements, publications, how the school would help their career), contact with their supervisors. A committee will be formed to conduct the assessment and selection of the candidates.
