Ocean Modelling Group meeting, Liverpool, Friday 9 September 2016

This year's Challenger Society Ocean Modelling Group meeting will be held on Friday 9 September 2016 at the University of Liverpool.

It will take place immediately after the 17th Biennial Conference of the Challenger Society for Marine Science (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/challenger-conference-2016/) which runs from Monday 5 September to Thursday 8 September 2016.

As usual, all breeds of ocean modeller are welcome, from those running coupled GCMs to conceptual modellers, from geophysical fluid dynamicists to biologists, from students to senior professors. Talks will be 10 minutes long and our goal is to make the meeting informal, so recently published results, work in progress, and your latest great ideas are all equally welcome! We encourage everyone to offer a talk title, but will prioritise students in our scheduling if necessary.

Accommodation will be available via the main Challenger meeting website.  There will be a small charge (to be determined) for lunch, tea, and coffee, which will be reduced for Challenger Society members.  

But for now all that is required is an email and talk title to me (helen.johnson@earth.ox.ac.uk) by 1 June to reserve your place!

Do please pass this on to anyone that I have missed, in particular to students and new members of your research group. Looking forward to another inspiring meeting, and to catching up on all the exciting UK ocean modelling activity.

All the best,

Helen Johnson
