The Ocean Modeling Forum is fostering networks of scientists and managers to improve the way models are used to address the most pressing challenges facing the world’s oceans.
Making Models Matter
How can the most cutting-edge technical analyses be harnessed to improve the world’s oceans?
The Ocean Modeling Forum aims to address that question. Our goal is to foster collaboration among the world’s leading technical experts to provide clear, decision-critical information on key ocean issues.
The Ocean Modeling Forum supports working groups formed around ocean management issues to produce rigorous and transparent advice on critical issues.
By fostering collaboration among scientists, managers, and key stakeholders, the OMF works to improve the usefulness of models in ocean management.
OMF working groups address pressing ocean management topics using diverse modeling methods. Working group members are scholars from a range of natural and social scientific disciplines who work in an integrated and collaborative manner. Scientists work alongside stakeholders and managers to co-develop goals, approaches, and outputs.
