Regional Training Workshop on Observing the Coastal and Marginal Seas in the Western Indian Ocean

A Regional Training Workshop on ‘Observing the Coastal and Marginal Seas in the Western Indian Ocean’ will be organised with the proposed dates of 7th - 9th June, 2022. The workshop is organised by the CLIVAR/IOC-GOOS Indian Ocean Region Panel (IORP), with support from the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) and the ReMoTURB Project (supported by the Mozambican Oceanographic Institute (InOM, former IIP) and Nelson Mandela University (NMU) in South Africa). The workshop will be a hybrid format with three components taking place simultaneously – physical workshop venues in Maputo, Mozambique, virtual attendance and presentation in Kuwait, and global virtual attendance.

This workshop will encourage the countries bordering the western Indian Ocean (including marginal seas) to be engaged in coastal observing programs and research as effective partners, and will also identify the training needs and capacity building in the participating countries and provide the opportunity for starting countries to learn from others who have already established programs.

The following topics will be covered by the workshop:

Overview of the WIO Observing Systems
Observation Instruments and Platforms in the WIO
Data access, Analysis and Management
Observation with Societal Needs
