Two large international workshops were organized on multiscale modeling of coastal, shelf, and global ocean dynamics. Contributions from the scientific community were encouraged on all aspects of multiscale ocean modeling from ocean science and dynamics to the development of new computational methods and systems. Computational results and discussions emphasized multiresolution simulations using unstructured and structured meshes, aiming to widen the range of resolved scales in space and time. Wang and researchers set up and evaluate the performance of the Finite Element Sea ice Ocean Model (FESOM) in the North Atlantic and Arctic Ocean region in a hindcast experiment. Scholz and researchers utilize Finite Element Sea ice Ocean Model (FESOM) to study inter-annual to decadal variability in deep-water formation rates over the global ocean for the period 1958 2004. Considering coastal ocean responses to storm events, Otero analyze the consequences of a stormy winter period on the dynamics off Northwest Iberia, utilizing the Regional Oceanic Modeling System with mesh refinement and a nesting procedure (AGRIF).
