The Eighth JCOMM-TCP Workshop on Storm Surge and Wave Forecasting (SSW-8) was held at the Institute for Meteorological Training and Research (IMTR), Nairobi, Kenya, from 19 to 23 November 2012.
This series of workshop is co-organized by the Joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) and the WMO Tropical Cyclone Programme (TCP), with a view to enhancing capacities of the National Hydrological and Meteorological Services (NMHSs) in providing necessary forecasting and warning services against natural marine hazards that complement broader disaster preparedness and mitigation activities. Noting the emerging issue of recurrent coastal inundation by storm surges particularly in the South and East African coast, the eighth Workshop is convened with a regional focus on South and East African countries, and aims to directly contribute to the development of the Storm Surge Watch Scheme (SSWS) of WMO.
