Report of the Workshop on Operational Oceanographic Products (WKOOP)
The Workshop on Operational Oceanographic Products (WKOOP) met at ICES Headquarters in Copenhagen, 8‐9 April 2008 to discuss the need for concerted action on bringing the producers of operational oceanographic products together with the potential users from the ICES community. After reviewing the existing products and programmes and discussing the potential requirements of users, WKOOP concluded that swift progress is needed to stimulate communication between producers and users. This is needed to enable products to be tailored to users needs. The ICES users are expected to be engaged in both the scientific and advisory roles of ICES. There are many products already available of which most of the wider ICES community still seems unaware. Thus WKOOP recommended the formation of a new ICES working group to bring both the producers and users of operational oceanographic products together. The name of the group should include elements from the producers and users, thus the ICES Working Group of Operational Oceanographic products for Fisheries and Environment [WGOOFE] was chosen.
