The 4th workshop on waves and wave-coupled processes

Date: 14-16 February 2023
Venue: Hambergsalen in the Department of Earth Sciences, Uppsala, Sweden

The critical role of ocean surface waves in ocean and climate system is attracting more and more attention. However, the modelling, analysis and observation of ocean surface waves and wave-coupled processes are still facing a number of challenges.

After the previous three successful workshops, Uppsala University (UU), University of Melbourne (UM), and First Institute of Oceanography (FIO) will organize the 4th workshop (hybrid) to increase discussion and collaboration within this field among the international community. This meeting will be conducted in plenary, with time reserved for discussion to identify key research questions within the international community.

The workshop will cover the following sessions:

- Wave breaking and dynamics of ocean waves
- Wave-current interactions
- Air-sea fluxes and atmospheric wave boundary layer
- Wave influences in the upper ocean
- Wave-ice interactions
- Waves in the large-scale air-sea system
- Wave-coupled processes in extreme metocean conditions
- Wave-coupled effects in gas transfer, ocean biogeochemistry, other air-sea interface processes
