New Directions in Land Data Assimilation

2nd Annual Land Data Assimilation Community Virtual Workshop

13-15 June 2022 | 10:00-13:00 EDT // 16:00-19:00 CEST

The AIMES Land Data Assimilation Working Group will hold its 2nd annual workshop ‘New Directions in Land Data Assimilation’ on 13-15 June 2022 from 10:00 – 13:00 EDTThe goals of the workshop build on the principles of the working group to: (1) foster knowledge exchange across all groups working in land DA and (2) build a community of practice and collaboration in land DA, particularly for addressing the technical challenges we face in implementing DA systems. The themes of the workshop were identified by the land DA community during the 2021 meeting on Tackling Technical Challenges in Land DA and through feedback from a post-workshop survey.

We now invite abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations that address one of the following main themes: 

(1) Machine Learning in Land DA
(2) Observation and Model Uncertainty
(3) Ensemble DA methods
(4) Crossover in Land DA challenges between Numerical Weather Prediction and Land Surface Modeling communities

We are seeking abstracts that put greater weight on addressing the technical challenges associated with developing land DA systems than answering the scientific questions that lie behind those technical developments, which is typically the focus of other professional meetings and conferences. Oral presentations will prioritize the themes identified above. However, we will also consider abstracts that address important topics beyond the designated themes.

We are looking forward to continuing to build the land DA community and to seeing your abstracts! The deadline to submit your abstract is Friday, March 4, 2022. Email with any questions.
