Ocean Sciences Meeting 2022 - Special Session: Paired Modeling and Autonomous Monitoring in the Coastal Ocean

#1 Post by jwiggert »

Dear colleagues,
 
We cordially invite you to submit an abstract to the session on “Pairing autonomous monitoring with modeling to expand capacity and develop new understanding of coastal ocean systems” at the Ocean Science Meeting 2022 in Hawaii. This session is co-sponsored by IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES).
 
The submission system will be open (https://osm2022.secure-platform.com/a) until the abstract submission deadline of Wednesday, 29 September 2021 at 23:59 EDT.
 
Session Details: (also see https://www.aslo.org/osm2022/scientific-sessions/#om)
 
Session ID: OM02
Session Title: OM02 - Pairing autonomous monitoring with modeling to expand capacity and develop new understanding of coastal ocean systems
Section/Focus Group: Ocean Modeling
 
Abstract: The use of autonomous platforms for both research and operations in coastal oceans has expanded rapidly over the past decade. These applications include monitoring air-sea interactions, marine mammals, ecosystems, sediment resuspension and transport, water quality, ocean acidification, among others. These observational systems are becoming more affordable, modular, capable and ubiquitous. Maritime stakeholders, operational resource management agencies, and researchers from private and public organizations are still seeking more complete and sustained ocean information globally in order to design and support policy options that sustain ocean-related human benefits. Autonomous systems are increasingly paired with ocean models to expand impact and improve model solutions. New capabilities are being developed to use these model outputs to inform and maximize the information collected by autonomous systems and fill observational gaps. Ocean model solutions can be used to plan for autonomous vehicle deployment, to optimize sampling paths for autonomous vehicles, to enable targeting of features with adaptive sampling methods. The co-development of autonomous observing networks and numerical models is increasingly important in regions and conditions where ship-, buoy-, float-, and satellite measurements are not affordable, feasible, or limited by environmental conditions. The UN Ocean Decade has identified capacity building as one pathway toward fulfilling coastal ocean data needs. The combination of autonomous ocean observations and numerical models can be leveraged as force multipliers while serving to expand regional observational capacity. We seek to engage coastal autonomous ocean observation and modeling groups, including those interested in developing new collaborations and integrated global approaches. Early career and under-represented groups are encouraged to submit to this session.

In an effort toward a more equitable 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting, the session chairs have organized an abstract sponsorship initiative (link below) so that the abstract fee is not a barrier to individuals residing in a developed country (abstract fees are already waived for participants attending from developing countries).

We also encourage you to forward this invitation to your colleagues who may be interested and please don't hesitate to email if you have questions.
 
We look forward to seeing many of you at Ocean Sciences next year!
 
Kind regards..
