1 GODAE OceanView Observing system Evaluation Task Team Report Peter Oke 1 and Gilles Larnicol 2 1 CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research; 2 CLS November 2011 “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’, but ‘That’s funny…’ ”, Isaac Asimov ( )

13 Responses to “observing system events”  Continuation of Jason-1 data processing in inter-leaved orbit (June 2009)  UKMet and BoM provided a demonstration of the impact of Jason-1 data in inter-leaved orbit during recent outages  13 Contributed by G. Brassington, BoM

14 Responses to “observing system events”  Continuation of Jason-1 data processing in inter-leaved orbit (June 2009)  UKMet and BoM provided a demonstration of the impact of Jason-1 data in inter-leaved orbit during recent outages.  Extension of life of Jason-1  CLS provided results to OSTST  14 Contributed by G. Larnicol and G. Dibardoure, CLS

17 NRT OSEs  Routinely run parallel forecast at operational centers and with-hold a different data each month:  Quantify the impact of each data type on forecasts  Multi-system approach  Rotating data types each month  UKMet have participated  Australia and France have indicated that they will participate  China and Canada have indicated that they may participate  17 Jan 2011 Feb 2011 Mar 2011 Apr 2011 May 2011 Jun 2011 Argo XBT TAO Jason-02 All altims SST Jul 2011 Aug 2011 Sep 2011 Oct 2011 Nov 2011 Dec Microwave SST Argo XBT TAO Jason-2

19 Provision of Observation Impact Statements (OISs)  19

20 Provision of Observation Impact Statements (OISs)  20

21 Provision of Observation Impact Statements (OISs) Actions:  Agree on NRT OSE schedule  Agree on metrics  Agree on content of OISs  Agree on method of dissemination  21

22 Summary  GODAE OceanView OSEval-TT are committed to supporting observation agencies/teams in demonstrating the impact of observations on forecast and analysis products  Many groups are undertaking research activities to:  quantify the impact of past observations; and  contribute to the design of future observing systems  Recent initiatives have motivated operational centers to develop capabilities for quantifying the impact of current observations in NRT  DFS, analysis sensitivity, forecast sensitivity  The OSEval-TT has developed the idea of “Observation Impact Statements”  We need agreement on the details  Seek resources?  22
