Call for papers & abstract submission for the DA-TT workshop (20-22 May 2015)

The Data Assimilation-Task Team (DA-TT) will foster the development and evaluation of data assimilation systems relevant to GOV to support the coordination of the fundamental and challenging issues in the ocean forecasting process, of which data assimilation is a significant part. The purpose of this workshop is to review the current status of ocean data assimilation in operational and near real-time systems, to provide a forum for discussion of developments in ocean data assimilation (subjects of particular interest include hybrid DA, coupled DA and observation impact assessment methodology) and to coordinate the activities of the DA-TT.

The workshop is intended to be a mix of oral presentations, open discussion, and poster presentations.
