Call for abstracts for EGU General Assembly 2020 session on 'Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS)

Call for abstracts for the upcoming EGU General Assembly 2020 session on Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) OS4.7 (Vienna, Austria, May 3-8, 2020).

Detailed information on the session can be found here: OS4.7

This year, we are delighted to have two keynote talks:
- Pierre-Yves Le Traon, Mercator Ocean International, Scientific Director of CMEMS: “Copernicus Marine Service: achievements, future challenges and long-term evolution”
- Mike Bell, MetOffice: “Challenges in ocean modeling and data assimilation for CMEMS”.

The Copernicus Marine Service session will focus on:

Research activities that are required to maintain CMEMS systems at the state of the art and prepare their long-term evolution, including (but not limited to):
for models: physical and biogeochemical modeling, coupling with coastal systems; coupling with sea-ice, atmosphere & waves; data assimilation both for physics (ocean, sea-ice, wave) and biogeochemistry; progress in short-term forecasts and assessment of forecasting skills.
for observations: impact of existing and future in situ and satellite observations for estimates of the ocean state; processing and analysis of remote and in-situ observations of the ocean; use of Sentinel products.

For long-term evolutions: seasonal to multidecadal regional projections for the coastal ocean and marine ecosystems, ocean model forcing from river discharge of freshwater and nutrients.
verification, validation and uncertainty estimates of CMEMS products, forecasting skills,
ocean monitoring and long-term assessment of the ocean physical and biogeochemical states,
the use of CMEMS products for downstream applications.
Please note that presentations are not to be limited to research teams directly involved in CMEMS and participation from external teams is also strongly encouraged.

The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2020 13:00 CET.
You can find more information on abstract submission here.
