  Information - OS4 Operational Oceanography: Skill Assessment and Error Analysis (co-listed GI, NP)

Event Information
This session will move away from the (often) descriptive nature of integrated systems and their components as required for operational oceanography. In stead we welcome contributions in the area of Operational Oceanography which demonstrate skill assessment and / or error analysis. This might be through the use of a range of metrics comparing model simulations with data (metrics already existing in oceanography or novel methods taken from other disciplines), or through data assimilation and analysis of error covariances and error distributions. Assessment can be for hindcast, nowcast or forecast systems. Disciplines can range from physical (e.g waves, currents, the thermohaline structure and related fields) to physical-biogeochemical (e.g. inherent optical properties, chlorophyll concentration, primary production, nutrient cycling). We invite papers describing assessment of local, regional and global models and the complementary observing systems (e.g. fixed in-situ, satellite, ferries) which provide the data required for assessment, from the open ocean to the nearshore. We envisage 3 sessions 1) metrics and new assessment methods, 2) error analysis, 3) demonstrations of system improvement.
