We would like to inform you of the upcoming Tropical Pacific Observing Needs Workshop, which will be held virtually May 24-26, 2021. The primary aim of the Tropical Pacific Observing Needs Workshop is to build upon the recommendations put forth by the TPOS2020, OceanPredict’19, and other workshops to bring together the observational, modeling, and data-assimilation communities to determine the observing needs to advance process understanding of the tropical Pacific Ocean and its representation in models with a goal to improve ocean-atmosphere prediction.
More details about the workshop and how to register/submit an abstract can be found online at https://usclivar.org/meetings/TPON-2021. Registration is free of charge but required in order to participate. Abstract submissions are due March 5, 2021.
This workshop will provide: (i) a forum to discuss observational needs to advance understanding of tropical Pacific ocean-atmosphere coupled processes and their representations in climate, forecast, and biogeochemical models; (ii) the opportunity for atmospheric scientists, oceanographers, observationalists, and modelers to interact, bridge conceptual gaps, and develop scale-aware observational strategies to advance our fundamental understanding of ocean-atmosphere coupled processes.
