Numerical models are now used widely by the oceanographic
community to understand physical and coupled physical-biological
processes, to establish nowcast/forecast systems of the oceans
and seas, and to assess future climate change. Physical oceanography
has matured to the extent that it has started to provide ocean
prediction products on various space and time scales by combining
numerical models with observations. The development and application
of coupled physical-biological models has emerged as an active
area of research in oceanography. Ecosystem models, some created
under the auspices of PICES, are capturing the dynamics of physical-chemical-biological
interactions and are being applied in the North Pacific.
main objective of the summer school is to teach and motivate
postgraduate students, early-career scientists, and other
professionals who will be the principal users of numerical
models. This three-day summer school will summarize our present
knowledge of circulation and ecosystem modeling, and introduce
numerical models that can be used and applied in various fields
of oceanography. Participants will carry out computer exercises
to gain modeling experience.
The official language
of the summer school is English.
