ADAPT seminar

Speaker: Dr. Steven Greybush(Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science, Institute for Cyberscience, and ADAPT Center, Penn State )
Topic: "Data Assimilation System Design in 10 Steps... for Planetary Atmospheres and Beyond!"

Room: Rm529 Walker Building (refreshments served)
Time: Thursday, October 17, 2019, 4:25pm - 5:30pm
Data assimilation can be applied to scientific problems across many disciplines beyond Numerical Weather Prediction for the earth. Using observations of a dynamical system along with a predictive model of the system, data assimilation can provide the best estimate of the current state of the system and its uncertainty. This talk will introduce 10 steps for designing a successful data assimilation system for a new application, and draw examples from data assimilation design for planetary atmospheres. The Penn State Center for Advanced Data Assimilation and Predictability Techniques (ADAPT) seeks to integrate and enhance the existing strength and expertise in cutting-edge data assimilation (DA) and predictability research across Penn State. This seminar is cross-listed as a department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science "Frank Talk." The principal goal of the Frank Talks is to foster graduate student and faculty interactions, which were promoted by Meteo Professor Emeritus William M. Frank (
