1. There is a workshop registration fee of $25 to cover coffee breaks, reception and local transportation expenses.
2. The workshop format differs from previous AOMIP worshops with more attention to be paid to discusions and group meetings with a reduction of oral presentations, their duration and an increase in the number of posters with at least a 4-hour poster session.
At this time, we solicit your:
1. Presentation titles for oral (15 minutes) and poster presentations.
2. Requests to attend the FAMOS School.
3. Requests for travel support.
Tuesday, October 21: FAMOS School with 5 lectures of 35-40 minutes in length by senior scientists on topics of interest to arctic ice and ocean modeling and oberving communities. See: http://www.whoi.edu/page/live.do?pid=123156 for last year's line-up. Location: Redfield Auditorium, Woods Hole, MA.
Currently, we have 2 confirmed lecturers:
1. Bonnie Light (the role of light in the ice/ocean system, TBD).
2. Paul Wassmann (the future of the arctic marine ecosystem and its modeling, TBD).
3. Patrick Heimbach (an overview of assimilation methods relevant to sea ice - ocean modeling, TBD).
4. Laurie Padman (tides, mixing, TBD).
5. Clara Deser (atmospheric circulation, TBD).
