9th International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean (IWMO)

The 9th International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean (IWMO) was held at Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea on July 03-06 2017. It was full of interesting talks.

By the JCOPE members, three papers was presented.

  • Yasumasa Miyazawa “Updating ocean model/data assimilation components of the JCOPE2 operational ocean forecast system for biogeochemical applications” [1]
  • Sergey M. Varlamov “High resolution coastal ocean modeling for research and applications”
  • Toru Miyama “Bottom Intrusion to the Bungo Channel in a high-resolution ocean data
    assimilation data: JCOPE-T-NEDO”

The following two studies used our JCOPE2 data.

  • Kaushik Sasmal “Application of a nested wave model for wave energy resource assessment”
  • Yu-Lin Eda Chang [2]“The physical and biological roles of mesoscale eddies on migration of
    Japanese eel larvae in western Pacific Ocean” [3]
