About the workshop:
The workshop was originally scheduled for June 2-3, 2020. This is will be the ninth in a series of relaxed workshops on the Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF) with emphasis on the atmospheric applications from convective to global scales, including hybrid methods, coupling and comparison to traditional variational methods. We also plan to honor the legacy of Dr. Fuqing Zhang and his contributions to data assimilation and the EnKF workshop. We hope that many of you will be able to attend.

Note: The Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at The Pennsylvania State University will hold a symposium to celebrate and honor the professional accomplishments of Professor Fuqing Zhang on June 4-5, 2020, which is right after the work shop.
