GNSS radio occultation (GNSS-RO) measurements are an important and well-established component of the global observing system. With more than 10,000 occultations per day available, we are now starting a data-rich era and it is important to exploit the measurements in the best way possible.
This workshop, organized by ECMWF and the EUMETSAT Radio Occultation Meteorology Satellite Application Facility (ROM SAF), will review the use of the GNSS-RO data at the major NWP centres, and explore how the assimilation of the measurements can be improved using more sophisticated observation operators. The value of GNSS-RO as "anchor measurements" for estimating the bias correction of satellite radiances will be emphasised. The workshop will also cover new work on polarimetric RO (PRO), and review the work on climate monitoring and space weather with GNSS-RO.
This workshop is co-sponsored by ECMWF and the EUMETSAT Radio Occultation Meteorology Satellite Application Facility (ROM SAF). The workshop will help inform future research and development directions for the ROM SAF.
This is an in-person workshop only, there is no option to attend online.
This workshop is by invitation only. If you have been invited and would like to attend, please submit the registration form before 30 April 2024.
