47th International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics Marine Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Prediction 4 -8 May 2015

Ocean modelling has become a standard tool for management of ocean resources during the last decade. Observational networks are operating on a routine basis and numerical models are assimilating data for specific purposes. Though used routinely, monitoring, modelling and data assimilation still pose a series of open scientific questions that should be addressed in order to improve the products of those modelling, monitoring and prediction systems. The aim of the colloquium is to bring...
