V Congress Of Physical Oceanography, Meteorology And Climate Of The Eastern South Pacific

Monday, November 6, 2017 to Friday, November 10, 2017
Event Description: 


The V Congress of Physical Oceanography, Meteorology and Climate of the South-East Pacific will consist of invited conferences, oral presentations and posters in the following thematic areas:

  • Climate variability and global change
    • This thematic area includes studies on impacts of climate variability and long-term environmental changes in the South Pacific region. It also includes studies on natural and man-made mechanisms that contribute to this variability.

  • Regional physical oceanography
    • It considers works based on observations or models oriented to the analysis of physical processes that contribute to the variability of the regional ocean in different scales of time and space. Hydrographic studies, ocean currents, and others that describe the oceanographic conditions of the region.

  • Regional Weather
    • It includes all meteorological works that describe and explain meteorological phenomena that occur near the surface, at spatial scales of tens to hundreds of kilometers, in the coastal zone, in the mountains, as well as in rural and urban areas.

  • Ocean-Atmosphere Interaction
    • It considers studies of the transfer of energy, mass and momenum between the ocean and the atmosphere and their consequences (both in the ocean and in the atmosphere) at different spatial and temporal scales. They are considered works based on observations in situ and / or remote or in models.

  • Oceanography of estuaries and coastal areas
    • It considers studies of the oceanographic and process conditions that take place in southern channels and fjords, in bays and inland seas. Both observational and modeling work are considered.

  • Paleoclimate
    • It considers studies of the ancient climates of the Southeast Pacific region based on different types of records (terrestrial, marine, glaciers, etc.) or models of the terrestrial climate system.

  • Waves and Tsunamis
    • It considers wave studies in coastal and oceanic regions. Tides and extreme events. Generation and propagation of tsunami. Impacts of waves and tsunami in coastal areas. They are considered works based on both observations and models.

  • Non-conventional renewable energies
    • In this area are considered works oriented to the evaluation of energy potential associated with wind, wave, tidal and solar resources. In addition to studies oriented to ERNC generation and the exploitation of these resources.
