[Save the Date] Regional Training Workshop on Observing the Coastal and Marginal Seas in the Western Indian Ocean including the Arabian/Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman
A Regional Training Workshop on ‘Observing the Coastal and Marginal Seas in the Western Indian Ocean including the Arabian/Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman’ will be organised with the proposed dates of 7th - 9th June, 2022. The workshop is organised by the CLIVAR/IOC-GOOS Indian Ocean Region Panel (IORP), with support from the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) and the ReMoTURB Project (supported by the Mozambican Oceanographic Institute (InOM, former IIP) and Nelson Mandela University (NMU) in South Africa). The workshop will be a hybrid format with three components taking place simultaneously – physical workshop venues in Maputo, Mozambique, virtual attendance and presentation in Kuwait, and global virtual attendance.
This workshop will encourage the countries bordering the western Indian Ocean (including marginal seas) to be engaged in coastal observing programs and research as effective partners, and will also identify the training needs and capacity building in the participating countries and provide the opportunity for starting countries to learn from others who have already established programs.
The following topics will be covered by the workshop:
- Overview of the WIO Observing Systems
- Observation Instruments and Platforms in the WIO
- Data access, Analysis and Management
- Observation with Societal Needs
