Session 3: Community Contributions

Chair: Ed Sarachik

Speakers have been asked to work with their communities to address the following:

  • What are the most important 1) requirements for your community to meet, 2) goals, and 3) time scales? 
  • What is the strategy to meet your goals?
  • What is the status or health of the observing system components necessary to deliver the goals?
  • Are redundant measurements an affordable priority in today’s budget climate?  If so, how are we benefiting?  If not, what can be eliminated?
  • What is the role of international or other partnerships?
  • How are/can emerging technologies be integrated?
  • Most importantly, what will the observing system need to look like in 5 years to address the questions and goals above?

S. Garzoli


  1. The use of IOOS data to resolve Climate Signals and to develop indices for Detection and Attribution of Climate Change
    • Definition and identification of climate signals
    • What measurements are needed to understand them and index them? Which ones are we now measuring with IOOS? How can their measurement be improved? Which ones are additionally needed?
    • The use of satellite observations and the blending with the IOOS components
    • What products are we generating (or needed) to best describe the climate system?
  2. Model validation and initialization
    • Model needs for validation
    • Elements of the IOOS use to compare with products from model simulations to analyze and to diagnose the nature of the disagreements
    • Where the models fail and how IOOS can help
    • Observations needed for model initialization
  3. Direct application of the observing system information. What is needed? What can people use?
    • Ecosystem assessment and management
    • Hazards and warnings
    • Global and regional change
    • Resource management
