Working Groups

Ocean Uncertainty Quantification Working Group

The US CLIVAR Working Group on Ocean Uncertainty Quantification was formed in April 2020. The Working Group aims to develop strategies and identify best practices for improving the understanding, derivation, communication, and utilization of the uncertainties of ocean in-situ, remote, and modeled products related to physical variables.

The Working Group will work torward three consecutive objectives:

  1. Develop a community-driven web platform for uncertainty quantification knowledge and strategies.
  2. Produce peer-reviewed open-access articles on uncertainty quantification for observational and model ocean data.
  3. Organize a summer school and/or workshop on uncertainty quantification.
