Workshop announcement : “Toward a coordinated marine monitoring in the Eastern Levantine basin”

The Altifloat project organizes the workshop “Toward a coordinated marine monitoring in the Eastern Levantine basin” at the University of Cyprus in Nicosia (Cyprus) on the 20th of May 2014.

The Altifloat project maintains a Lagrangian monitoring of surface currents off the coasts of Lebanon and develops an assimilation methodology to estimate the surface current from altimetry and these Lagrangian data. Taking advantages of this activity, which has already gathered a group of physical oceanographers, the Altifloat project aims at creating a larger network of scientists from several Mediterranean countries. The interested parties should be involved in the observation and/or modelling of the marine system in the Eastern Levantine basin (Mediterranean Sea).

The Nicosia workshop will address all the aspects of the in-­‐situ marine observations with a focus on the sub-­‐basin scale : physical and biogeochemical and biological parameters are considered, from the in-­‐situ data collection to the exploitation of data. The first part of the workshop will focus on observational and data analysis methodologies, observations and scientific results. The second part will be devoted to future plans and the discussion of a strategy to make progress toward a coordinated and integrated marine monitoring in this area.

Students, post-­‐docs, and research scientists of all types are welcome to attend the workshop and are strongly encouraged to present their work. Please, send an email to the organizers if you intend to participate to the workshop.

If you plan to present either past or present work and scientific results, or plans for the future, please provide a provisional title before 9 May 2014.

The registration is free of charge. Some travel grants are available.
