    The 3rd Argo Science Workshop: the Future of Argo

            Sponsored by AST and PICES and hosted by CARDC and the Second Institute of Oceanography, SOA, the ASW-3 was held in March 24 – 27, 2009 in Hangzhou, China. 102 participants from 13 countries (USA, France, Japan, Korea, Canada, Australia, Spain, UK, India, Argentina, China, Germany and Norway) attended the workshop. The workshop received 90 papers, in which 43 were presented orally and 47 as poster in five sessions, that is, heat and salt budgets on global and regional scales; estimation of circulation fields on global and regional scales; the role of Argo in constraining ocean data assimilation field; seasonal to inter-annual variability as seen by Argo and new technology. The work shop is a great success and the beauty of the city and the generous hospitality of the host has left deep impression on the participants. Just as Prof. Howard Freeland, co-chairman of AST said in his letter of thanks to Prof. Jianping Xu, Chief Scientist of China Argo, “We got the instructions, information and support that we needed. Now all that remains is to write the necessary white paper for UNESCO to be presented at the OceanObs meeting in Venice in September.” “I firmly believe that 10 years from now when the Argo executive is going through this process again they will look back at the meetings in Hangzhou and see that this really can be done and here is one very successful example. I hope that 10 years from now you will be able to look back with pride at what was achieved in Hangzhou. We still have to draw the road map for the next 10 years of Argo, but last week we got the information needed to draw that map, Hangzhou in 2009 and ASW-3 will for a long time be seen as an important turning point for ocean science.” “The generosity of our Chinese colleagues is, of course, legendary and I am sure that all participants enjoyed the wonderful meals and entertainment throughout the series of meetings in the beautiful city of Hangzhou.”

The 25 related papers were submitted to the meeting, and 18 of them were selected to give oral presentations. These presentations were related to (1)the progress of Argo project, (2)the application of Argo data in the ocean data assimilation and air-sea coupled model, (3)Rossby wave, mixed layer, thermocline, water-mass and circulations in the Pacific and Indian ocean, (4)Argo data quality control and Argo database construction, (5)the development of COPEX float and deep sea Glider.




    The 2nd National Oceanic Data Assimilation Symposium

            3-6 Nov. 2004, the 2nd National Oceanic Data Assimilation Symposium (ODAS04) was held in Changshu City, Jiangsu Province. Over 40 representatives from 14 research organizations and universities attended the meeting. This symposium was sponsored by the Key Lab of Oceanic Dynamic Processes and Satellite Oceanography (SOA), the Second Institute of Oceanography (SOA), the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (CAS), and the Climate and Environment Committee of Chinese Industrial and Applied Mathematics Association.

            The ODAS04 was presided over by Professor Xu Jianping from the Second Institute of Oceanography (SOA), who is the Chief Scientist of China Argo Project. There were 21 papers exchanged in the meeting, which are related to the oceanic data assimilation method, the application of assimilation technology, the global ocean observing system, and the ocean observation data collecting, processing and quality controlling. Among them, there were 11 reports related to Argo data application research (Annex 1), especially to the application results in the operational forecasting system.

            This meeting has sufficiently presented the research achievements in the oceanic data assimilation field, particularly in the Argo data application since the first symposium (ODAS03) held October 2003, and also showed the function and situation of Chinese academic society in this new front area. Nearly half of the reports were related to the Argo data, of which showing the developing process of China Argo project and the reward from its data freely distributed nation widely, and also greatly promoting the research activities in the oceanic data application and assimilation. In this sense, this meeting (ODAS04) could be regarded as the first Argo data workshop in China.
