8th WMO Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction and Earth System Prediction – 27-30 May 2024, Norrköping, Sweden
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is organizing the 8th WMO Workshop on the Impact of Various Observing Systems on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and Earth System Prediction (ESP), from 27 to 30 May 2024.
The workshop, held every 4 years, has been the WMO focal point for providing scientific evidence on the impacts of surface and space-based observing systems, on different applications, including NWP and Earth System Applications such as climate. The findings of the workshop are part of the process to evaluate the impacts (or potential impacts) of observing systems, which translates into increased attention. Over the years, this workshop has increasingly touched the oceans.
Over the past six months, the Global Ocean Observing System and multiple UN Decade Ocean programs and projects have been working with Workshop organizers to shape the scope of the Workshop. As a result of this engagement, the science questions which motivate contributions to the workshop, include ocean-specific lines of inquiry. We encourage contributions from the ocean community in response to these questions.
