Objectives

The specific objectives of the conference are:

  • To increase the scientific understanding of the main processes governing ocean-atmosphere interactions and their impacts on the Earth system and climate with special attention to the 8 SOLAS strategic science themes;
  • To review the current advances in EO technology and its capacity to contribute to the SOLAS next decade science challenges;
  • To accelerate the development of novel and reliable multi-mission data products capable of exploiting the synergies of the increasing number of complementary EO missions to better address the major scientific gaps in ocean-atmosphere interactions;
  • To foster the integration of EO data into advanced coupled models describing and forecasting main ocean-atmosphere processes;
  • To consolidate a scientific roadmap outlining priorities and scientific requirements to further advance in the development and exploitation of global observations and consistent data records capable of supporting the international scientific efforts of the SOLAS community.
