Topic: Parameter Estimation & Inverse Modelling

Friday, June 02, 2023 from 7-9h UTC

Organizers and Conveners: Yvonne Ruckstuhl (W2W, LMU Munich, Germany), Yuefei Zeng (NUIST, Nanjing, China), Lars Nerger (AWI, Germany), Tobias Necker (U. Vienna, Austria)

Estimating uncertain model parameters during data assimilation bears great potential for improving numerical predictions. In recent years, parameter estimation gained increasing popularity in climate and numerical weather prediction applications. This ISDA-online session will be devoted to all aspects of parameter estimation and inverse modeling, including research beyond geosciences. We sincerely invite emerging contributions to these research areas.
