Workshop on Atmosphere-Ocean Interaction

The Workshop on Atmosphere-Ocean Interaction was held from 10 to 12 November 2008.

Description

The workshop addressed the requirements for ocean-atmosphere coupling from the very short time scales to the monthly time range with focus on ocean near-surface processes.

Questions discussed included:

  • Which processes need to be taken into account e.g. ocean waves, currents, diurnal cycle of SST, ocean mixed layer dynamics, horizontal resolution of SST?
  • What is the impact of air-sea processes on atmospheric phenomena (including extreme events) e.g. tropical cyclones, extra-tropical explosive genesis, monsoons, MJO?
  • Which models are the most appropriate at different time scales, and what are the implications for seamless forecasting?
