Events

We are fortunate to have the facilities to host a number of events, from small project meetings to large-scale workshops and conferences within our own Lecture Theatre. Currently, we are running fewer events than normal due to covid-19 but we plan to bring our marine science seminars, training courses and other events online in 2021.

Upcoming events

02 Mar - 17 Mar 21

Met Office Climate Data Challenge Hackathon

Online

Partner organisation

Key attendee: Dr Tim Smyth

The Met Office will be holding a virtual hackathon aiming to build society’s resilience to climate change. The two-day event on 16-17 March is aimed at finding new ways to use data to deal with the challenges and exploit the opportunities of our changing climate.

16 Mar - 17 Mar 21

Hidden Histories of Environmental Science

Online

Professor Beaumont on advisory board

Key attendee: Professor Nicola Beaumont

AHRC and NERC are co-funding a new research call: Hidden Histories of Environmental Science. You are invited to help shape the programme, transform cross-disciplinary research, inform practice and begin to form potential partnerships to apply for funding once the call opens.

18 Mar 21

NZOC The 21st Century Marine Technologist: autonomy and sensors for a net zero world

Online

Speaker

Key attendee: Dr James Fishwick

This event, hosted by the National Oceanography Centre, and the fourth in a series of workshops centred around Net Zero Oceanographic Capability, will explore the impacts and likely form of an automated future.

23 Mar - 25 Mar 21

Sea State CCI : User Consultation Meeting #2

Online meeting

PML is co-organising this event

The European Space Agency's Sea State CCI is developing a long-term consistent dataset of wave height and other parameters from spaceborne altimeters and imaging SAR, complemented by in situ observations and models.  A strong focus of the project is enabling long-term climate studies, but also in improving data quality in key regions such as the coastal zone and partially ice-covered Arctic. 

17 May - 20 May 21

Joint ECMWF/OceanPredict workshop on Advances in Ocean Data Assimilation

Virtual

This workshop aims to bring together experts in the field of ocean and coupled data assimilation to discuss the latest progress in the field, to outline the main challenges and to identify new directions for research.

25 May - 28 May 21

Second International Operational Satellite Oceanography Symposium

Online

Programme Committee members

Key attendee: Steve Groom, Dr Stefano Ciavatta

This second OSO Symposium will build on our first gathering in June 2019 of community members involved in all levels of the observation-to-information value chain, from data providers to users, of operational satellite oceanographic data, products and applications.

12 Jul - 15 Jul 21

AMEMR 2021

Plymouth

Organisers

AMEMR (Advances in Marine Ecosystem Modelling Research) Conference provides an opportunity to present, discuss and learn about a wide variety of marine modelling challenges, methods, applications and outcomes.
