Call for abstract submission and registration for PIRATA-23 and 2nd TAOS Review Workshop

The 23rd PIRATA meeting and the 2nd TAOS REVIEW meeting will be organized in Marseille, France from October 22 to 26, 2018. 

PIRATA is a major component of the Tropical Atlantic Observing System (TAOS) that is presently under a review process by the CLIVAR Atlantic Region Panel (ARP). The TAOS review committee will recommend actions to advance sustained observing efforts in the tropical Atlantic that will feed into the European AtlantOS program design strategy (Blueprint initiative) that is currently being formulated in advance of the OceanObs’19 conference. The 2nd TAOS Review Meeting is scheduled to happen back-to-back to PIRATA-23 meeting.

These meetings have to be an important opportunity to gather information on the Tropical Atlantic Observing System and PIRATA data use impacts from stakeholders, specialists in satellite measurements and products, ocean-weather-climate operational prediction, ocean biogeochemistry and resources along with socio-economic impacts of climate and environmental changes. Such information are of prime importance for evaluating and valorizing observing systems and to better define their potential optimization and enhancements in the close future, but also for major services and developing agencies.

Deadline for abstract submission is: 8 September, 2018
