Satellite Data Assimilation (IV) 

Introduction

The 4th Ewha International School on Data Assimilation (EISDA) will be held in June 24–26, 2015 at Ewha Womans University (EWU), Seoul, Republic of Korea. It is co-hosted by EWU’s two research institutions – Severe Storm Research Center (SSRC) and Center for Climate/Environment Change Prediction Research (CCCPR), and sponsored by Global Environment Satellite research Center (GESC) which is supported by Korea Environmental Industry&Technology Institute (KEITI). Data assimilation (DA) aims at incorporating available observations into numerical prediction model in order to obtain the most accurate (optimal) states. Use of satellite data is utmost important in modern numerical prediction of weather and environment. However, the success of satellite DA depends on many factors including radiative transfer model, observation operators, background/observation covariance errors, etc. Therefore understanding various aspects of DA, both theoretical background and applications, is essential for implementing successful satellite DA system. Students and junior scientists around the world are encouraged to attend this school to obtain knowledge on theoretical and practical aspects of satellite DA.
