The Canadian Operational Network of Coupled Environmental PredicTion Systems (CONCEPTS) is a collaboration between Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and the Department of National Defence (DND). The network works to develop and implement computer models that support ocean-ice forecasting advancements. The aim is to take advantage of improvements in ocean models and new real-time global oceanographic observation systems to produce oceanographic forecast products and improve seasonal to inter-annual climate forecasts.
