This 90 minutes webinar is a satellite event to the Ocean Decade Laboratories Laboratory 2: “ A predicted Ocean” Un Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030

Ocean predictions and observations in response to the climate emergency

Showcasing the link between ocean observations, climate models and climate services.Highlighting their importance for decision-making and for responding to the climate emergency.

Forecasts of future ocean conditions, of weather trends, of climate, covering months to 10 years are made all the time. But are they coming soon to your decision making process?

This webinar is a unique opportunity to access researchers representing the state of the art. How do we get from a measurement taken at sea, a measurement taken from space, to a forecast, to an interpretation that is going to make a difference to the way people plan?

Join us to get an insight into how the integration of different ocean and climate disciplines contributes to the vision of a predicted ocean, empowering all stakeholders, from decision-makers to local communities, to make meaningful decisions on the best available information.

Target audience

Stakeholders from across the world, particularly from industry, policy, NGOs and science.
