CREAMS/PICES International Summer School

on Ocean Circulation and Ecosystem Modeling
August 23-25, 2006, Busan, Korea , National Fisheries Research & Development Institute
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.

The 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.
