The Experimental Oceanography group at the Universität Hamburg, Institut für Meereskunde uses oceanographic measurements to advance our understanding of ocean dynamics and circulation in a changing climate.
The EPOC annual meeting started directly after the AMOC workshop, with discussions of recent advances in AMOC observations and modelling, both within the project and in the broader community.
Today, we kick off the AMOC workshop on ‘Meeting AMOC observation needs in a changing climate’. The workshop is co-sponsored by WCRP CLIVAR (by the CLIVAR AMOC Task Team, US CLIVAR and the EPOC project, and brings together members of the scientific community to discuss the value of AMOC observing, observational priorities and a roadmap for future AMOC observing.
The AMOC webinar series kicked off today with a webinar from Rebecca Hummels of GEOMAR, speaking on observations of the boundary currents and AMOC at 11°S - the TRACOS array. Stay tuned for future webinars on 18th April (Elaine McDonagh and Gokhan Danabasoglu), 23 May (Fiamma Straneo and Monika Rhein) and 20th June (Renellys Perez and Jaime Palter).
