May 22 – May 25 all-day

Course organisers: Alberto Carrassi/NERSC, Laurent Bertino/NERSC and Geir Evensen/IRIS & NERSC

Credits: 2 ECTS

Max. no. of participants: 30 (10 CHESS students)

The summer school : “Crash Course on Data Assimilation – Theoretical foundations and advanced applications with focus on ensemble methods” is part of CHESS initiative and is organised by NERSC. The course targets geoscientists with a background in mathematical and physical modeling, who are interested in the rapid development of data assimilation and its growing domains of application in environmental science, but so far have not delved into its conceptual and methodological complexities. In particular, PhD students and early stage scientists with beginner or no notions of data assimilation intending to apply data assimilation as part of their research are encouraged to participate.

The course will cover the basic notions of data assimilation, focusing on ensemble methods, illustrated with real-scale/operational applications and with the aid of practical exercises.
