The objectives of the event are:

  • To review the state-of-the-art in ocean circulation products and applications;
  • To assess the potential of the increasing observation capacity offered by satellites and their synergetic use to advance our understanding and monitoring of the ocean upper layer circulation;
  • To bring together expert scientists, service providers and direct users to discuss and agree on a number of key requirements for research and development activities that may address the science and applications needs of a wide range of users;
  • To exchange on the existing gaps, define priorities and issue recommendations for shaping a new ESA WORLD OCEAN CIRCULATION from space project and other initiatives to be implemented in the ESA EO Science for society programme element.
