Moreover, we wanted the first IWMO to be in a vibrant city—Taipei, Taiwan.

Approximately 150 researchers worldwide from 30 countries participated in the Workshop. There were over 60 oral presentations and posters covering a broad range of topics that included not only ocean dynamics, predictions, and data...
