Title: IODE/GOOS/JCOMM Combined Modeling and Data Management Training Workshop
Other Titles: Jamboree
Corporate Author: IOC for UNESCO

Abstract: The joint JCOMM/GOOS Panel for Capacity Building and IODE held the Combined Modeling and Data Management Training Workshop (the "Jamboree"), 5-10 September 2005, in the IOC Project Office for IODE in Oostende, Belgium. It was attended by trainees from the Indian Ocean region, Africa and Central/South America. The purposes of the workshop were: 1) To train attendees to implement national services for warnings of wind waves and storm surges; 2) To improve interaction/ understanding between modelers and data managers. A team of modeling experts from India and Norway designed a PC-based "Numerical Modeling Laboratory" (NML), including all necessary components for ocean numerical forecasting, as well as an Experimentation Plan for the tuning and validation of the selected models. The Jamboree was observed by IODE data management trainers, with a view toward developing a modeling and application of data for tuning and validation. Thes attendees have learned:- Principal, scientific functioning of selected numerical models; -Operational setup with topography/ bathmetry, forcing fields and graphics; -Exercising model sensitivities and case studies; -Searching for relevant observation data on the Internet; -Skills to lecture this knowledge to colleagues at the national/ regional level. The present workshop is seen as Phase I in the development of a futurre series of JCOMM/IODE/GOOS workshops. The specific technical results from the various modeling experiments are reported at http://ioc.unesco.org/oceanteacher/OpModWorkshop/index.htm.
