A UN Decade Laboratory Satellite event, this fun and creative activity helped form teams within each of the Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) themes that will act as the lifeblood for making OASIS goals a reality. See the workshop report from this event here: Workshop Report
Location & Date
This workshop was held virtually during two identical one-hour sessions at the following dates and times:
Thursday 16 September at 1400 -1500 UTC/ 1600-1700 CET
Thursday 16 September at 2300 – midnight UTC/ Friday September 17 at 0100-0200 CET
The sessions were each preceded and followed by 1-hour poster/social sessions.
View the talks that were a part of the OASIS for a Predicted Ocean workshop below.
The Satellite Activity encouraged brainstorming and collaborations using short pre-recorded talks combined with highly interactive online tools. We used Gather.Town with separate rooms for each theme, whiteboards, a poster session room, small meeting areas, and a larger plenary session
The five themed poster sessions and discussion rooms addressed:
What physical, biogeochemical, and ecological air-sea interaction processes should be included in the Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) to promote a Predictable Ocean? How well are these processes resolved or parameterized in models?
How can OASIS become truly global through capacity building and sharing?
What OASIS “Ocean Shots” are needed to make a Predictable Ocean?
How can best practices be developed and promoted to ensure that in situ and remotely-sensed air-sea interaction observations and modelled variables are interoperable?
What Findable-Accessible-Interoperable-Reusable (FAIR) OASIS data, models and products need to be developed to create a Predictable Ocean?
Overall, this satellite event aimed to:
Showcase recent advances in integrated air-sea flub observing strategies and improvements to ocean prediction (resolution, model validation, etc.)
Promote synthesis of various OceanObs19 (i.e. OASIS community) recommendations through prioritization of common themes
Develop a OASIS roadmap to guide the future direction of air-sea flux integrated observations
Showcase Early Career Ocean Professionals within the OASIS community
