DA-TT workshop (20-22 May 2015)

The full agenda is available as pdf - latest update 27 April 2015


The workshop is planned to run for ~2.5 days, covering a variety of themes:

 1Global Ocean data assimilation systems
 2Regional Ocean data assimilation systems
 3Error covariance modelling
4Model error and bias
5Observation impact and sensitivity
6Hybrid data assimilation approaches in the ocean
7Data assimilation in coupled models


The themes will be addressed in the following way:

Day 1: Themes (1) - (3)

Day 2: Themes (4) - (7)

Day 3: Morning discussion sessions and/or break-out groups on proposed activities 1 and 2

It is anticiapted that Day 3 (a Friday) is likely to be a short day, perhaps ending early afternoon so that people can catch evening flights home.


Themes (3) and (4) would also have the aim of reviewing preliminary progress towards Activities #1 and #2, and discussion of the design of future collaborative efforts. .
