Annual Seminar 2021

| 13-18 September 2021

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Annual Seminar has changed to a virtual-only format.

2021 Topic: Observations

The 2021 Annual Seminar on Observations will be held jointly with the WCRP-WWRP Symposium on Data Assimilation and Reanalysis.

The Annual Seminar will provide an Earth System view of observations, identifying where the current global observing system is meeting new and existing Earth System requirements. How effectively the current observing system is being used for NWP and reanalysis will be explored, as well as consideration to gaps and how they may be addressed in the future. The seminar will consider science and technical issues common to observations across multiple components, and also issues specific to these components.

Seminar aims

The seminar is part of ECMWF's educational programme and is aimed at early career scientists as well as those who are more established in their field.
