Brown Participates in First International Operational Satellite Oceanography Symposium

ESSIC/CISESS Visiting Research Scientist Christopher Brown was on the Executive Steering and Program Committees of last week’s First International Operational Satellite Oceanography Symposium (OSOS), a meeting jointly organized by NESDIS’ Center for Satellite Applications (STAR) and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT).

Designed for users of operational satellite oceanographic data, products and applications, the conference’s objectives were to 1) redefine the operational paradigm, 2) link data providers to information providers, 3) help users find the information they need, and 4) facilitate the end-to-end value chain.

In addition to his role at ESSIC/CISESS, Brown is currently a member of STAR’s Satellite Climate Studies Branch and an Affiliate Research Scientist with the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. An oceanographer, Brown uses satellite remote sensing and modeling to document, understand and predict biological patterns and their consequences at local to global scales.
