IODE-seminars I: Linking Sea and Sky - MetOcean modeling to deal with coastal hazards

Added on 2009-10-05
In order to give marine scientists in Flanders the opportunity to stay informed about the latest developments in the field of oceanography in general and marine data and information management, marine biodiversity and ocean modeling in particular, the IOC Project Office for IODE has started - in cooperation with the Flanders Marine Institute - with the organisation of scientific seminars. On 19 October 2009 three top scientists will present their work with atmosphere-ocean models to deal with coastal hazards.

Each year several top scientists visit the IOC Project Office for IODE in Oostende to cooperate in projects on oceanography, oceanographic data- and information management and marine biodiversity. In order to give marine scientists in Flanders the opportunity to stay informed about the latest developments in the field of oceanography in general and marine data and information management, marine biodiversity and ocean modeling in particular the IOC Project Office for IODE has started with the organisation of scientific seminars. These IODE Seminars are open to the wide marine science community in Flanders and abroad.

The first IODE Seminar 'MetOcean Modelling to deal with coastal hazards – Linking Sea and Sky' will be organised on Monday 19 October in the framework of the Jamboree-III Training Workshop. An international group of oceanographers and meteorologists comes together during the JAMBOREE-III Training Workshop in order to work together on several mathematical atmosphere-ocean models to predict wave height, storm surges and ocean currents.
