Ocean models are an integral part of today’s ocean and climate research. Advances in high-resolution ocean modelling provide opportunities but also challenges for simulating the ocean climate system, particularly with the growing availability of observational measures.
A CLIVAR endorsed workshop addressing challenges and future directions in high-resolution ocean modelling will be held online, on September 29 – October 1, 2021 hosted by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel.
The focus is on 4 themes:
* How robust is the decadal variability among hindcasts as compared to observational measures?
* How do modelling strategies affect model drift and robustness of results?
* Are there additional critical processes to include (submesoscale, tides, gravity waves)?
* How important is coupling to separate internal variability from external, anthropogenic forcing?
The call for abstracts (Deadline 27 August 2021) is now open at https://events.geomar.de/~OM2021
