Title: Sustaining Coastal Observatories

Sustaining Coastal Observatories
Bring together groups engaged in developing
and running coastal observing and forecasting
systems (relax!) How to sustain coastal
observing systems Bring together operators and
users Foster exchange of information and
experiences Forge liaisons and collaborations
  • 1 Research Predicting the response of shelf
    seas to change
  • 2 Management Water quality coastal defence.
    Central / local government
  • 3. Management Applied Navigation, fishing,
    offshore construction, SAR
  • 4. Public, education (schools universities)

  • Three workshops
  • Visits

Website http//
1. Best practice in the synthesis of long-term
observations and models - Liverpool
Workshop 1
  • Session 1. Results from long term measurements
  • Session 2. Utilising long term measurements in
    model hindcasts
  • Session 3. Data assimilation
  • Session 4. Design of observing / modelling
  • Session 5. Application of observatories to the
    management of shelf seas

Special Issue of Journal of Marine Systems
10 papers, due to appear soon
2. The Status Of European Coastal Observing And
Forecasting Systems, Mallorca
Workshop Discussion Sessions
  • Can we identify how the coastal zone is affected
    by climatic and anthropogenic factors?
  • Can we forecast, to sufficient accuracy for
    marine management purposes, the physical and
    ecosystem response in the coastal zone?

  • Outputs
  • Talks on web site
  • Feedback
