The second meeting of the COST Action 1402 Evaluation of Ocean Synthesis (EOS) was organised. It saw the Management Committee (MC) members from various countries joined at the Univeristy of Liege, Liege, Belgium on 2nd-4th March 2015. Representatives from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory managed by NASA and the MET office of the United Kingdom were also present.
The main goals of this COST Action are to improve the coordination of the European efforts in the evaluation of ocean syntheses, to optimise their use and value, to ease their access, to promote their improvement and to raise confidence in their quality. These evaluations require cross-disciplinary meetings with experts in Earth Observation, ocean and atmosphere syntheses, air-sea flux measurements and modelling and physical oceanography. Such a COST Action will provide the optimal framework for integrating these communities.
