Observing Network Design & Model Improvements Theme Team
- What are the physical and biogeochemical air-sea interaction processes and ecological stressors that should be included in the OASIS?
- How well are these processes resolved or parameterized in models?
- How well are these processes observed by the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS)? And by the operational observing network that provides near-real time data to modeling and data centers?
What near-term activities are needed to optimize the OASIS network design?
- What near-term activities (e.g. process studies, model studies) are needed to advance flux parameterizations? air-sea interaction understanding? coupled model physics? weather, climate and ocean prediction? Coupled ocean-atmosphere data assimilation for initialization of coupled forecasts?
