Day 4 draft agenda

Developing technology and infrastructure

The theme will examine the frontiers in observing technology and plans, and in the infrastructure of the observing system, that will allow for a decade of expansion in the capabilities of the ocean observing system.


9:00-10:30
Session 4A
In situ
Session chair: Kate Larkin
This session will present the new technologies available for use in the coming decade, both sensors and platforms to carry the sensors, and community plans to make use of these. Focus will be on in situ technology.

12:30-14:00 Lunch
  14:00-15:45 Session 4C
Information Synthesis and Delivery
Session chair: David Legler
The success of the observing system in the years ahead will depend upon a range of activities to ensure that the system design is adequate to user needs; that there is provision for all the observations and analyses to have appropriate metadata, data transport, data set integration and visualization, data discovery and access;  that there are data assimilation and analysis systems to ensure that all relevant observations are combined into useful fields.  
  • Synthesis and assimilation systems: essential adjuncts to the Global Ocean Observing System - Michele Reinecker (20 min)
