Ocean Modelling

 
The Challenger Society Ocean Modelling SIG exists to connect UK ocean modellers of all flavours, from those running coupled General Circulation Models to conceptual modellers, from geophysical fluid dynamicists to biologists, from students to senior professors. Our goal is to promote interaction, especially among early career ocean modellers, and to showcase the breadth and brilliance of the ocean modelling taking place across the country in academic and other institutions.

We hold an informal meeting in September each year where we aim to hear from as many people as possible. Short talks on recently published results, work in progress, and your latest great ideas are all equally welcome! Students are particularly encouraged to present and are given priority in theschedule. In even years, our meeting takes place in the same week and location as the Biennial Challenger Society Meeting. In odd years we hold a 1.5 or 2 day meeting (with a chance for networking over dinner) in a location that rotates around the country.

How can you get involved in the SIG?

Contact the current conveners Helen Johnson (helen.johnson@earth.ox.ac.uk) and/or Dave Munday (danday@bas.ac.uk) directly by email, or ask your local senior ocean modellers to forward you details of the next meeting.

We do not have an external website, but this year’s meeting in Edinburgh (9-10 September 2019) is advertised here: https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/homes/dgoldber/challenger.html


The 2018 Ocean Modelling SIG meeting was held on Friday 14 September in Newcastle.  We heard 36 inspiring 10-minute talks, and lots of fun was had by all!
