      CLIMAR-V Objectives:
  1. To harmonize the flow of oceanographic and marine-meteorological data and metadata, from sensor to products
  2. To review the needs of the community for marine climate data and integrated products
  3. To recommend changes or enhancements to observing and data management practices that will benefit the marine climate community
  4. To encourage submissions to the Dynamic Part of the WMO Guide to the Applications of Marine Climatology

      CLIMAR-V Sessions:
  • Session I: Marine climatology - operational and scientific producs and applications
  • Session II: From observations to climate services and safety at sea
  • Session III: Mulitsector use of marine data
  • Session IV: The JCOMM Marine Climate Data System (MCDS)

      In Situ Marine Wind Workshop Objectives:

    The workshop will focus on wind observations made in-situ on marine platorms (e.g., ships, moorings, rigs, autonomous vessels) and the variety of applications these measurements support in the marine climate community. Relevant topics include:

  1. The accuracy and quality of wind observations and intercalibration between in-situ and other wind observations (e.g., satellite).
  2. Wind indices on multiple time scales
  3. Identifying gaps in characteristics of wind observations associated with various platforms (e.g., ship tracking, national observing practices)
  4. Rescue of historical wind observations
  5. Dataset development (Joint session with CLIMAR5)
  6. Applications of wind observations in marine climatology (Joint session with CLIMAR5).
      Outcomes of this workshop will include best practices for in-situ wind observation, including metadata requirements, and a set of priorities to meet user needs. These findings will be published in the Special Journal Issue.
