The OSS2015 project was actively present at MyOcean Science Days in Toulouse, 22 to 24 September 2014.
The objective of the meeting was to report on the scientific preparatory work for the future Copernicus marine service and to pave the way for future R&D activities linked to the service. Associated European projects such as OSS2015 were given an opportunity to report on the achievements of their own objectives.
Two posters presented results issued from OSS2015. O. Fanton d'Andon et al., presents an overview of the project and its main outcomes, while C. Fontana et al. focuses on work performed in UPMC/LOV for the deployment of BioArgo floats.
In addition, O. Fanton d'Andon was appointed as chairperson for the plenary session "Predicting the Living Ocean" (photo), and A. Mangin was a member of the discussion panel on the topic "How to improve the overall design of our monitoring and forecasting systems ?".
The scientific "hot" topics addressed during the three days confirmed the right positioning of the OSS2015 project regarding the ocean bio-geochemistry.
Optimization of in-situ data collection, data assimilation, identification and modeling of bio-regions were particularly highlighted.
