International workshop on coupled data assimilation

Event date(s): Tuesday 18th October 2016  –  Friday 21st October 2016

Location: Toulouse, France

Centre International de Conférences - Météo-France - Toulouse - France

18th - 21st October 2016

This workshop is intended to facilitate the more rapid advance of development of coupled data assimilation methodologies to improve weather and climate predictions and reanalyses. The workshop will cover methods for coupling of data assimilation methodologies between the atmosphere, ocean, land-surface, sea-ice, aerosols, atmospheric chemistry, and more, including weak coupling (coupling of the forecasts providing the background forecasts) and strong coupling (coupling of the state estimation as well). The workshop will also consider which observations are particularly important to advance coupled assimilations.

The workshop will include overview presentations by selected invited speakers, 15-minute oral presentations, posters, discussion of the key scientific and technical challenges, and breakout groups to list the key issues and to formulate recommendations for how collaboration facilitated by the WMO can advance the state of the science more rapidly.
