Summary: After the success of STUOD first workshop, we are thrilled to be back with another educational and inspirational event. “Stochastic Transport in Upper Ocean Dynamics” (STUOD) project is the highly prestigious ERC Synergy Grant, led by Imperial College London, National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automatic Control (INRIA) and the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (IFREMER). The project aims to deliver new capabilities for assessing variability and uncertainty in upper ocean dynamics. It will provide decision makers a means of quantifying the effects of local patterns of sea level rise, heat uptake, carbon storage and change of oxygen content and pH in the ocean. Its multimodal monitoring will enhance the scientific understanding of marine debris transport, tracking of oil spills and accumulation of plastic in the sea.

In September 2021, STUOD is planning to host the 2nd Annual Workshop which will focus on a range of fundamental topic areas, including:
1. observations at high resolution of upper ocean properties such as temperature, salinity, topography, wind, waves and velocity;
2. large scale numerical simulations;
3. data-based stochastic equations for upper ocean dynamics that quantify simulation error;
4. stochastic data assimilation to reduce uncertainty.

Scientific Committee:

  • Prof Darryl Holm (Imperial College of London),
  • Prof Bertrand Chapron (Ifremer),
  • Prof Dan Crisan (Imperial College of London),
  • Prof Etienne Mémin (INRIA).

Programme and Format: This 4-day event will include individual presentations, snapshot presentations and demos. The speakers include leading mid-career and senior researchers as well as early-career researchers. This forum will yield opportunities for: investigators at an early stage of their career to have discussions with established scientist, fostering potential future research collaborations, networking as well as inclusion and training of the next generation of researchers.
