Field campaign to assess the spatial and temporal variability of currents at the inner bay

▪ Participant: Dr Aida Alvera Azcarate

▪ Home Institute: University of Liege (Liege, Belgium)

▪ Host Institute: STARESO (Corsica, France)

▪ Mission: Field campaign to assess the spatial and temporal variability of currents at the inner bay.

▪ Results: The results obtained has led us to agree to continue the measurement of the currents in the Bay of Calvi in a regular way, once every month. These data will be used in the frame of a local model, nested in a regional / Mediterranean Sea model.

DEBIAS and DINEOF

▪ Participant: Gaëlle Parard

▪ Home Institute: University of Liège (Liege, Belgium)

▪ Host Institute: LOCEAN (Paris, France)

▪ Mission: DEBIAS and DINEOF - smooth reconstruction of SMOS data taking into account the repeatr cycle of 18 days.

▪ Results: The SMOS DINEOF show higher error than the!SMOS DEBIAS but the time and space resolution were higher. The product from the LOCEAN SMOS DEBIAS shows better validation.

Long term seriec of chlorophyll-a and phytoplannkton bloomes for the coast of Ireland

▪ Participant: Dr Gema Casal

▪ Home Institute: Marine Institute (Ireland)

▪ Host Institute: Estonian Marine Institute (Tallinn, Estonia)

▪ Mission: Long term seriec of chlorophyll-a and phytoplannkton bloomes for the coast of Ireland

MEDRYS

▪ Participant: Mr Lotem Robins

▪ Home Institute: University of Haifa (Haifa, Israel)

▪ Host Institute: Mercator Ocean (Tolous, France)

▪ Mission: Include MEDRYS to define a statistical relation, during the period 2000-­‐2011, for the months of August until December in southern France that suffers from severe heavy rain eventsis the Cevennes Vivarais region

▪ Results: The statistical calculation in the following research did not yield the expected results. Low values of the coefficient between the independent variables, SST index and air-SST (separately and together) and the dependent variable, accumulated rain at the Cevennes Vivarais region.

Compare two versions of the NEMO-LIM ocean-ice model

▪ Participant: Dr Petteri Uotila

▪ Home Institute: FMI (Helsinki, Finland)

▪ Host Institute: CMCC (Bologna, Italy)

▪ Mission: To compare two versions of the NEMO-LIM ocean-ice model, LIM2 and LIM3.

▪ Results: In terms of global sea ice, LIM2 has more sea ice than observed, while LIM3 is more realistic. Notably, both LIM2 and LIM3 have a too fresh Arctic with a weak thermocline, and a relatively weak AMOC which could be linked to a relatively high sea-ice transport from the Arctic to the East Greenland Current.

Methodologies used to produce a high temporal and spatial resolution global ocean wind forcing product based on scatterometer observations

▪ Participant: Ana Trindade

▪ Home Institute: ICM-CSIC (Barcelona, Spain)

▪ Host Institute: KNMI (de Bilt, The Netherlands)

▪ Mission: Review the methodologies used to produce a high temporal and spatial resolution global ocean wind forcing product based on scatterometer observations, ERA*, by evaluating the associated bias and variability of the stress equivalent wind (U10S) and wind stress fields.

▪ Results: The new approach taken to calculate the scatterometer correction locally improves the correction w.r.t the previous method. Given the better temporal coverage at higher latitudes the new approach is considered more robust.

Preprocessing methods and their application to the hyperspectral data

▪ Participant: Dr Ele Vahtmäe

▪ Home Institute: University of Tartu, Estonian Marine Institute (Tallinn, Estonia)

▪ Host Institute: University of Haifa (Haifa, Israel)

▪ Mission: Promote preprocessing methods and their application to the hyperspectral data in order to be able to extract good quality reflectance information for the benthic habitat mapping purposes.

▪ Results: ATCOR showed the closest comparison with the shapes of the field spectra and outperformed other modules in the specific case. Retrieving the correct spectral shapes is of utmost importance while using classification methods like the Spectral Angle Mapper  in benthic habitat mapping purposes. 

Data frequency, geographical distribution and access policy from data originators

▪ Participant: SylvainWatelet

▪ Home Institute: University of Liege (Liege, Belgium)

▪ Host Institute: IMR (Bergen, Norway)

▪ Mission: Data frequency, geographical distribution and access policy from data originators.

▪ Results: Try to detect any possible change in the oceanic circulation, as well as in the Norwegian sea.

Mechanism for the change of the AMOC in historical ocean reanalysis

▪ Participant: Chunxue Yang

▪ Home Institute: Centro Euro-Mediterraneo per i Cambiamenti Climatici (Bologna, Italy)

▪ Host Institute: Department of Meteorology, University of Reading (Reading, United Kingdom)

▪ Mission: The mechanism for the change of the AMOC in historical ocean reanalysis.

Create and establish a working feasible connection with CISC and allow the acquisition of SMOS satellite data

▪ Participant: Gil Gilad

▪ Home Institute: University of Haifa (Haifa, Israel)

▪ Host Institute: Institute of Marine Sciences (Barcelona, Spain)

▪ Mission: To create and establish a working feasible connection with CISC and allow the acquisition of SMOS satellite data.

▪ Results: The CISC products were received and will be integrated in the current research. Sea Surface Salinity from 2010-2013 both Fused and 9 day maps were gathered, and access to different forms of the processed data is now established.
