Challenger Ocean Modelling SIG meeting 2019

9-10 September 2019, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh


The Institute for Global Change of the University of Edinburgh School of GeoSciences is pleased to host the annual meeting of the Challenger Society Special Interest Group for Ocean Modelling. We invite the submission of abstracts for oral presentations which cover the full breadth of ocean modelling, including physical, biological and chemical oceanography, and from idealised process studies to regional and global simulations. All members of the community are welcome, and we specifically encourage early career scientists to present their work. The aim of the meeting is to provide an informal forum for discussion, and presentations will be limited to a maximum of 10 minutes.

Note the meeting will have a lunchtime-to-lunchtime format, i.e. will begin with lunch on 9 September and close with lunch on 10 September.

This meeting is supported by the Challenger Society for Marine Science, and in part by the Scottish Alliance for Geoscience, Environment & Society (SAGES). For further information, please contact the convener, Dr Daniel Goldberg (and co-convener Dr James Maddison)


The workshop will be held at the Edinburgh Center for Carbon Innovation, University of Edinburgh. The ECCI is in the City Centre, adjacent to the Royal Mile and 6 minutes walk from Waverley Station.
