5th International workshop on modeling the ocean


The session themes below cover a wide range of topics which reflect the current interests of the members of the Science Committee.

Main content

But not to worry if you think your submission "may not quite fit." We welcome submissions on all topics in oceanography and in coupled processes between the ocean and atmosphere, surface waves, sediment, land and ice. Both modeling and observational analyses with an eye to understanding processes are welcome.

After the abstract submission deadline (1. February 2013), the scientific committee will group the talks in sessions that reflect the thematic content of the contributions.
