New Publication: Building a Land Data Assimilation Community to Tackle Technical Challenges in Quantifying and Reducing Uncertainty in Land Model Predictions

The American Meteorological Society has published the meeting report from the AIMES Land Data Assimilation Working Group Virtual Workshop on “Tackling Technical Challenges in Land Data Assimilation.” On June 14-16, 2021, over 100 participants from the Earth system modeling and numerical weather prediction land data assimilation communities met virtually to discuss technical challenges faced in developing land data assimilations systems, possible solutions, and a roadmap for addressing those challenges, and ideas for building a land DA community to facilitate future collaborations and knowledge exchange.  Read the article to learn more about creating the Land DA Community, associated challenges, and future steps towards better communication to develop the community.
