FOO 2019

The third Forum for Operational Oceanography was held on the 15-16 October 2019, at the Pullman Albert Park Melbourne.

The program had two major themes, with the following topic areas:

  1. Opportunities for operational oceanography to drive the development of Australian marine industries
    • Next generation ocean remote sensing
    • In situ ocean observing, especially near real time
    • Ocean modelling and forecasting
    • Big ocean data
    • Marine renewable energy
  2. Risks to Australian marine industries and the role of operational oceanography in helping to manage them
    • Climate risks
    • Operational uncertainties (e.g. swell, wind waves, internal waves, surface currents)

FOO 2019 was sponsored by these organisations
