Topic: Satellite Data Assimilation II

Friday, May 12, 2023 from 15-17h UTC

Organizers and Conveners: Qi Tang (l'Université de Neuchâtel), Prashant Kumar (ISRO, India), Zofia Stanley (NOAA/CIRES, US), Javier Amezcua (Tec. de Monterrey, Mexico; U. Reading, UK)

Satellite observations substantially contribute to the accuracy of initial conditions and forecasts in geoscience and beyond. The high importance and variety of satellite observations, including various ongoing and future satellite missions, call for further advances in satellite data assimilation. We invite all contributions from this active and exciting research field.
