The OceanPredict Symposium (OP’24) will take place from 18 – 22 November 2024, with the last day reserved to the OceanPredict Science Team meeting. The overarching theme of OceanPredict ’24 will be “Advancing ocean prediction science for societal benefits” to highlight the central role played by ocean prediction in the UN Ocean Decade goals. It will invite ocean and atmospheric scientists, observation specialists, industry representatives, service providers, governments, and users of ocean data & products from across the international operational oceanography community to engage in science sessions, exhibitions and discussions to explore and define the direction of operational oceanography.

The symposium will seek to

  • accelerate the evolution of operational oceanography as a key component of Earth System Modeling;
  • identify the growing and changing needs of users and how to enhance service delivery;
  • align the objectives with the goals of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development

A plenary session on user applications and societal observations is planned in collaboration with GEO Blue Planet.
