|09:00-09:30||Clivar ARP (Sabrina Speich), TAOS Review Committee (Bill Johns)|
|Session I: Requirements for the Tropical Atlantic Observing System Chair: S. Speich|
|09:30-10.00||1.1 Societal impact and importance of observing the Tropical Atlantic||Moacyr Araujo|
|10:00-10:30||1.2 Tropical Atlantic variability and change||Paulo Nobre|
|10:30-11:00||1.3 Role of the Tropical Atlantic in the climate system||Belen Rodriguez-Fonseca|
|11:30-12:00||1.4 Impact of Tropical Atlantic biases in climate predictions/projections||
|12:00-12:30||1.5 Tropical-Extratropical Link||Jeff Knight|
12:30 - 14:00
Session I (continued)
|14:00-14:20||1.6 Capabilities for seamless forecasting from days to season: the role of ocean observations||Magdalena A. Balmaseda|
|14:20-14:40||1.7 Extreme Events||Scott Stripling/Ping Chang|
|16:00-16:30||1.10 Biology and Fisheris applications: Requirements, synergies, and gaps||Joern Schmidt|
|16:30-17:00||1.11 Presentations from related observation programmes (IMBER, SOLAS, POGO)||Carol Robinson|
Requirements for existing and emerging drivers;
essential ocean variables (EOVs) and system design.
What is the key information that is being
(a) sucessfully provided and
(b) missing from the TA observing system for these science/societal drivers?
(Recommendations from today's session with a special focus on issues to address in the review)
|18.00-19.00||Review Committee meeting (closed session)|
Session 2: Tropical Atlantic Observing System Networks: Current Status and plans to 2030

|10:20-10:40||2.6 Surface flux measurements from buoys, ships, and gridded products; Atmospheric and marine boundary layer observations||Chris Fairall/Paquita Zuidema|
|11:00-12:00||Discussion: Successes and gaps of the observing system newtork for science/societal applications; How to fill those gaps/optimize the TAOS?
Recommendations for future evolution of the TAOS.
