Announcement of 2001 Terrain-Following Coordinates Ocean Models Users' Workshop August 20 - 22

The second joint biannual workshop for users of Terrain-Following Coordinates Ocean Models involving the POM, SPEM, SCRUM, and ROMS modeling communities will be held in Boulder, Colorado (USA) from August 20-22, 2001 (Monday though Wednesday).

The plan is for two days oral presentations and one half day (Wednesday) for informal discussions.

All interested parties (users and non-users) are cordially invited to attend. We are requesting to let us know as soon as possible if you will be attending. We need a head count.

Please e-mail abstracts or your intention to participate (if you do not wish to present) by May 31, 2001 to both, H. Arango and T. Ezer. We are especially interested in presentations dealing with advanced numerical techniques, evaluations and comparisons of different models or schemes, and data assimilation. Please tell us what other topics you will like to see covered.

Depending on the number of participants, the venue for the meeting is either NCAR's Mesa Lab or NOAA's Forecast System Lab. We will send a future mailing regarding this workshop, hotel, transportation, and other information.

We look forward to seeing you in Boulder.
