Workshop #10, February 18-19, 2006

Pacific Ocean Science and Technology (POST) Building University of Hawaii, Manoa Campus

Framework Topics

The foci of the workshop are twofold. First, to discuss the forcing as used in the ongoing 50-year and upcoming 100-year runs. Secondly, to outline AOMIP's main research direction for the next 5-year period.

Day 1 - February 18, 2006

9:00 Opening remarks, workshop agenda (Andrey Proshutinsky)

Session 1: News and reports

A New Unstructured Grid, Finite-Volume Arctic Ocean Model (FVCOM-Arctic), C. Chen, School for Marine Science and Technology, University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth

5-minute reports of all groups (Kacher, Steele, Holland, Holloway, Johnson, Gerdes, Hunke, Makshtas, Wang, Maslowski, Hakkinen, Proshutinsky)

Session 2: Publications -1

11:00 -12:00
Paper discussion, structure of special section, paper review and submission procedures.

12:00-13:00 Lunch

Session 3: Publications -2

Paper discussion, structure of special section, paper review and submission procedures

Session 4: Mini-Draft of Proposal for Upcoming Five-Year Plan of AOMIP within IARC

14:00 -15:00
All meet. Define IARC proposal theme. Define AOMIP contribution within that theme. Define sub-topics (e.g., broken down either as physical-process (e.g., tides) or modeling-approach (ocean model, fully-coupled model etc.).

Break into groups of two. Each subgroup is as assigned a focus area (based on previous 1-hour discussion). Each group brainstorms to identify any possibility-plausible activity that the AOMIP team could make to the assigned focus area.

All meet. Each subgroup shares their brainstorming results to the whole group which either accepts or rejects these ideas.

Return into subgroups and write a one-page summary document of what AOMIP can do in the assigned focus area. Distribute write-ups to everyone.

Day 2 - February 19, 2006

Session 5: 100-year coordinated model experiment discussions

09:00 - 12:00
Presentation by Bill LArge (NCAR) on teh CORE forcing data set.

12:00-13:00 - Lunch

Session 6: Mini-Draft of Proposal for Upcoming Five-Year Plan of AOMIP within IARC

All meet. Recap the previous day write-ups. Critique each subgroups write-up.

Subgroups reform. Define performance metrics (i.e., published papers by who and when). Documents are rewritten.

15:00 -16:00
All meet. Final summary document describing how AOMIP will contribute to IARC's 'natural versus anthropogenic theme'.

Session 7: Internal AOMIP discussions
