We would like to let you know about the First Data Buoy Coordination Panel (DBCP) Mediterranean Training Workshop on Ocean Observations and Data Applications-Part 2 that will take place on 2-4 May 2023 in Tunis, Tunisia, and online. Guided by Sana Ben Ismail, IOCCP SSG member responsible for strengthening regional implementation, IOCCP has put together a session dedicated to Carbon & Biogeochemistry Observations as part of this hybrid-workshop.
Our session features presentations from and discussions with Maciej Telszewski (IOCCP Director), Marta Álvarez (CSIC, Spain), Sana Ben Ismail (INSTM, Tunisia), Abed El Rahman Hassoun (GEOMAR, Germany) and Houssine Nibani (AGIR, Morocco), covering a broad range of topics related to global and regional observing capacity, best practices, availability and use of data products, as well as data synthesis and coordination activities. We encourage any interested members of the community, especially from around the Mediterranean region, to join the workshop online through this MS Teams link. More information below and on the event page here.
The objective of the workshop is to enhance the Mediterranean region capacity to apply ocean observations for social and economic benefit and to improve the forecasts. The themes for the workshop will include information on the role of ocean observations for regional weather prediction and climatology, societal and economic benefits of ocean observations, best practices, data quality central and ocean observing with new technologies, data access and data applications, data quality control and ocean observing capacity in the region, as well as continuing the discussion from Medi-1 Part-1 (virtual session held in 9-11 November 2022) on the regional observations, quality control and data applications in forecast improvements.
