With their participation, some pending technical issues such as the platforms to be used during the event were fully discussed and tentatively determined. At the same time, the agenda of the three-day workshop was also further specified. For instance, the CLIVAR TBI co-chairs decided to extend the discussion session of each day for another 30 minutes for participants to better exchange their ideas.
