Crash Course on Data Assimilation – Theoretical foundations and advanced applications with focus on ensemble methods

May 5, 2020 – May 8, 2020 all-day
Nansen Center (NERSC), Bergen
Thormoehlensgt. 47 5006 Bergen

The 4-days course aims at PhD-level students and early-stage scientists intending to apply data assimilation as part of their research. The course should also be useful for students with beginner or little notions of data assimilation. The crash course will cover the basic concepts of data assimilation, focusing on ensemble methods, illustrated with real-scale / operational applications and with practical exercises. It will also include notions of Machine Learning of relevance for data assimilation.

The event is organised by NERSC and NORCE in the framework of the projects DIGIRES and REDDA from the Norwegian Research Council, and supported by the climate research school CHESS (travel costs of CHESS members will be covered by CHESS).
