Third International
Workshop on Advances in the Use of Historical Marine Climate Data (MARCDAT-III)

2-6 May 2011, Frascati, Italy

The workshop will showcase and build on recent advances in marine climatology:

  • Evaluation, utilization and improvement of the over 300-year record of ICOADS (e.g. using satellite data)
  • Development of multi-decadal, homogeneous gridded datasets for climate applications
  • Characterization of uncertainty and bias in marine observations and products
With the objective of recommending a 10-year action plan for improved integration and accessibility of climatological observations.
