Subject: Waves SIG meeting - September 2020
Ocean wind waves: Observing, modelling & forecasting. A meeting of the Challenger Society Special Interest Group on Ocean Wind Waves
I would like to invite you to attend a virtual meeting on the Challenger Special Interest Group on Surface Waves. This will be the third meeting of the Wind Waves 'SIG', which aims to bring together scientists, engineers and modellers from across the UK, interested in observing, modelling and forecasting ocean surface waves generated by winds. As the main Challenger conference is being held over until 2021, we invite participants to present their science online instead. Our meeting will be held over Zoom on Monday 7th September
Register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will add you in to our mailing list. Do please pass this on to colleagues who might be interested in attending, particularly students and new members of your research group. We look forward to seeing you in September to discuss new wave science. If you would like to present, take part by emailing your talk title to email@example.com by Friday 16th August. Talks will be 15 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for questions (This may be tweaked slightly, depending on the number of submissions)
We welcome contributions on all aspects of ocean wave observing, modelling & forecasting, and energy generation. This is an informal and friendly meeting, with short talks and time for discussion. We encourage everyone to offer a talk, from PhD students to professors. You can also chose to bring us work in progress or advertise your latest publication. Hope you can join us in September!
