On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to draw your attention on the SMOS+STORM ESA project workshopInternational workshop on measuring high-wind speeds over the ocean15-17 November 2016, Met Office, ExeterOverview:A three-day workshop on the science and applications of ocean surface winds, with a focus on measuring high or extreme wind speeds. The workshop will be held at the Met Office headquarters in the cathedral city of Exeter.Topics will include:

  • Satellite measurement techniques including new capabilities from SMOS, SMAP and AMSR2 sensors
  • Ground and airborne measurements
  • Core/operational applications and challenges e.g. hurricane/extreme forecasting, storm surges, waves
  • Air-sea applications and challenges e.g. seasonal/climate, upper ocean dynamics, air-sea interaction, biogeochemistry
  • Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) applications
  • Numerical Ocean Prediction (NOP) applications

Organisers: Pete Francis (Met Office), James Cotton (Met Office), Nicolas Reul (IFREMER), Craig Donlon (ESA)Further information on how to register for the workshop and submit an abstract and preliminary program is available from the link below:http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/conference/ocean-winds-workshopPlease find also attached the workshop flyer. workshop_flyer_v1.0
