More than 50 ocean and data assimilation experts came together at ECMWF from 22 to 25 January to discuss the way forward for the use of observations of sea-surface temperature (SST) and sea ice in numerical weather prediction (NWP) and climate applications.

Twenty-four speakers explored a wide range of topics, from what exactly we mean by SST to the latest research on data assimilation systems in which the ocean and the atmosphere are coupled.

Working groups discussed avenues for the development of data assimilation, observing systems and observation processing chains.
