Aims and scope

JONSMOD means Joint Numerical Sea Modelling Group and started in 1981. The general theme of JONSMOD conferences is ‘Latest modeling techniques for shallow seas’. The intention of JONSMOD biannual conferences is to allow informal discussions and exchange alongside presentations. In particular, the conference aims to provide a friendly atmosphere to young scientists who wish to present their work to a qualified audience.

Another goal is to publish a selection of the JONSMOD papers in an Internationally refereed journal (in previous conferences we chose the Ocean Dynamics journal).
