Abstract
    This report presents the results of the First Scientific Workshop of P.O.E.M. (Physical Oceanography of the Eastern Mediterranean) held in Erdemli, Turkey, 16-20 April 1986. It summarizes the present status and knowledge of the water masses and hydrography; general circulation; mesoscale processes and dynamics; air-sea interface fluxes in the Eastern Mediterranean. It reviews the relevant POEM work in progress and the POEM results to date, outlines future POEM work and plans. Two POEM general surveys of the Eastern Mediterranean have been carried out insofar, POEM-0-85 in October-November 1985 and POEM-1-86 in March-April 1986. Further general surveys are planned for November 1986 (POEM-2-86); March-April 1987 (POEM-3-87); August-September 1987 (POEM-4-87), the latter one to be coordinated with the METEOR expedition devoted primarily to measurements of transient tracers. The data set obtained with the sequence of these surveys will provide the first complete phenomenology of the Eastern Mediterranean and of its inter-annual as well as seasonal variability. Further POEM work focuses on the modelling component, which involves an extensive study of both the general circulation on the basin scale and of the mesoscale processes and related eddy field.
