The Third International Workshop on Advances in the Use of Historical Marine Climate will take place in Frascatin, ESRIN, Italia from 02 May to 06 May.

The workshop will showcase and build on recent advances in marine climatology:

  • Evaluation, utilization and improvement of the over 300-year record of ICOADS (e.g. using satellite data)
  • Development of multi-decadal, homogeneous gridded datasets for climate applications
  • Characterization of uncertainty and bias in marine observations and products

With the objective of recommending a 10-year action plan for improved integration and accessibility of climatological observations. See more details on ICOADS page.

Project Attendees:

Michael Ablain or Marie-Hélène Rio (CLS) - to give SLCCI presentation.
