This 5-day course is sponsored by EUMETSAT and is open to anybody with a suitable background as either a student or scientist working in data assimilation.
This course provides a complete overview of the usage of meteorological satellite observations in operational numerical weather prediction (NWP). It includes a series of lectures and practical sessions covering a range of topics – from fundamental theoretical concepts through to detailed practical implementations in modern state-of-the-art data assimilation systems.
Participants should have a good meteorological and mathematical background, and are expected to be familiar with the contents of standard meteorological and mathematical textbooks.
Introductory material not covered by the course can be found in our lecture note series.
Some practical experience in numerical weather prediction is an advantage.
All lectures will be given in English.
N.B. Please note the UK National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) and the University of Reading will also run a data assimilation training course from 9- 12 May 2023. This free course will take place in the University of Reading, just down the road from where the ECMWF trainings will be held.
