First year of myocean 2 a very busy year

First year of MyOcean-2:a very busy year

  • A year of operations: MyOcean-2 started with the operation of MyOcean Service version 2

  • A year of evolutions: Definition and specification of versions 3 and 4 (resp. April 2013 and 2014), implementation of V3

  • A year of technical work: Design, development and release of V3, R&D, Product quality, Outreach, communication and training

  • A year of important events: MyOcean science days, MyOcean User workshop, internal technical workshops, ECOMF strategic partnership

Continuous development in operations april 2012 april 2013

Implementation of V3














A deep internal involvement

A deep internal involvement

  • A improved decision process:

    • The Executive Committee Bureau (ECB: Marina, Sylvie, Bruce, Alistair, Vincent, Joël):

      • Analyses the issues to be submitted to the Executive Committee -> technical dossiers, preliminary trade-offs

      • Proposes decisions for the Exec. Com.

      • Avoids useless preliminary discussions

      • Some Examples: V3 and V4 requirements, WMS for all products, without authentication, Surface fluxes in reanalyses, Wave parameters , Hindcast definition, Major accounts and Specific Core Products, Merging PUMS and QuIDs, AOR organisation

    • Work structured and coordinated by cross-cutting work packages

    • A more mature way of working (within the Executive Committee):

      • Well known decision processes

      • Clear roles and responsibilities

A deep internal involvement1

A deep internal involvement

  • Specific internal work about requirements (for V3 and V4:

    • In depth analysis of MyOcean status and outputs

    • Internal consultation at the start of the project (from Kick-Off to June 2012 in Barcelona): significant and relevant feedback from WP leaders

    • A lot of important decisions taken quite quickly at the Barcelona Executive Committee meeting: user profiles, visualization, Authenticated FTP, archiving, priorities for the CIS, internal interfaces and data flows, etc…

    • Same process used for evolutions and other decisions (Toulouse and Madrid Exex. Comm. Meetings).

  • Preparation of the MyOcean PDR at T0+3 and T0+6 (while it was T0 + 12 in MyOcean).

Reviews and meetings

Reviews and meetings

  • External reviews (4):

    • Kick-off April 2012

    • Initial PDR (Design review) July 2012

    • Final PDR October 2012

    • AOR-1: today and tomorrow; POR (Pre-Operation Review), PDR and VaRR (Validation Readiness Review) on 18-19/04/2013

  • Internal reviews, meetings and workshops:

    • Executive Committee meetings (4) :

      • Kick-Off, Brussels, April 2012

      • Barcelona, June 2012

      • Toulouse, October 2012

      • Madrid, January 2013

    • Internal Reviews (Production Centres and CIS) (2 + 2):

      • Design Workshops: Barcelona, June 2012, Madrid, January 2013

      • Acceptance workshop: Madrid, January 2013

    • Technical meetings (awareness, training, etc) (1):

      • Service Management

      • Product Management

      • Technical meeting wrt to CIS interfaces and tests

  • ECOMF meetings for the preparation of the Copernicus Operational phase

Other important events

Other important events

  • MyOcean Science Days: November 2012

    • Strong participation (120 people, many projects)

    • Observational systems, Numerical modelling, Data assimilation, validation and user related issues

    • Outcomes relevant to the next phase but also to the long term operational oceanography R&D roadmap

  • MyOcean User Workshop: April 2013

    • Good participation

    • Plenary and splinter sessions and discussions

    • Final Round table

    • Main outcomes:

      • actions to be decided wrt MSFD applications and users,

      • Expected reinforcement of the link with the downstream services (end to end value chain),

      • consolidation for a long term and sustainable Marine Service

      • More frequent or coordinated User workshops

  • ECOMF Strategicpartnership: the Nicosiadeclaration:

    • defines an ECOMF Strategic Partnership between the “national” institutions that deliver data and predictions to their national or local authorities and ECOMF

Myocean 2 project progress

  • Main results:

  • A user driven Service

  • Current Service Status

A user driven service

A User driven Service

  • A single user interface: Service Desk and Web Portal

  • A specific project organisation:

    • Collection of user requirements and engineering into Service Definition:

      • User requirements, user surveys, questionnaires

      • User validation (beta testers), user feedback

      • Traceability of each system functionality to user requirements

    • A Work Package dedicated to user uptake:

      • Downstream applications and national/regional operational centres

    • Outreach, communication and training

    • User workshops

An international multi sector response

An international, multi-sectorresponse

Users in 88 different countries (26 EU members)

A fair repartition in application areas

And 67% of users using the core service in more than one sector

The myocean service in v3 v3 23 rd april 2013

The MyOcean Service in V3 (V3 – 23rd April 2013)

  • Products and datasets simplification

    • 107 products (instead of 201 in V2) with no reduction of information

  • Product upgrades in almost all areas

  • 15 new products (Global, Baltic model forecasts, ocean Colour and InSitu observation products)

  • Each Product is associated with a Product User Manual and a Quality Information Document

  • New search engine, faster access to products, updated FAQs

  • All products available through standard MyOcean interfaces

  • All products can be visualized

Next steps

Next steps

Next steps

  • Main activity: preparation of V4:

    • Final MyOcean Service version, to be operated 6 months during the project (April 2014 – Sep. 2014)

    • Intermediate versions for new products or system functions (CIS) will be defined

  • Reporting of the first period (May 2013)

  • Preparation of the post-MyOcean2 phase in the frame of Copernicus: ECOMF

Some challenges in the year to come

Some challenges in the year to come

  • Internal:

    • Involvement, reactivity, acting as a single entity: still needs strong efforts: not an easy task, given the size and the structure of the project

    • Reducedelays in eachdelivery or contribution: thisis one major issue (example: integration and transition phases)

    • Keep enthusiasm in our “daily” tasks: this not the end of the story, but the beginning!

    • Maintain our Service and System State-of-the-Art, well integrated

  • Internal & External:

    • Prepare, develop and deliver V4 (and intermediate versions)

    • Take new user requirementsintoaccount (from UWS in particular)

  • External:

    • Engage even more the users in the Service, downstream sector

    • Maintain and develop relationships with main providers (Space, InSitu), European Agencies, main stakeholders

    • Be prepared to ECOMF... MyOcean 2 project to prepare a sustained, Service
