The Shirahama Oceanographic Observatory (SOO), Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University will hold a workshop titled “Field Measurements in Fluvial and Coastal Areas and the Utilization of the Observed Data” on 22 November 2016. You are cordially welcome to attend the workshop. No registration is required.
Shirahama Oceanographic Observatory (SOO) is one of the field facilities of Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University. SOO has an offshore observation tower and the field observations on oceanographic and meteorological research have been carried out continuously.
The field observation data have important information to comprehend the oceanographic and meteorological phenomena in the subject area. The field observation data are also useful for the validation of the simulation results. Continuous multi-item data in situ would offer some partial solutions to investigate the phenomena from many angles. The significance of the field observation for better understandings is evident.
This workshop has two aims, one is the advantageous exchange of field measurement activities in fluvial and coastal areas, and the other the discussion about the utilization of the observed data (data processing, validation of simulation results, open access to data and so on).
