Cursusdoelen
This seminar will be organized by Svetlana Dubinkina of the CWI.

Seminar course: Data Assimilation in Geoscience.
 
How do meteorologists forecast the weather? Is there a way to predict the profit from a wind farm? What does a gas company do in order to estimate the amount of gas it will be able to extract from a well before investing money? The modern science helps with all these tasks suggesting a technique called data assimilation. Many international and Dutch research institutes and companies (e.g. KNMI, IMAU, Shell, Deltares, NCAR (USA), Met Office (UK)) develop and employ data-assimilation algorithms. Moreover, as studies have shown (http://www.met.reading.ac.uk/pg-taught/pgtmscda.html), the demand on personnel trained in data assimilation is constantly growing.
 

 
Inhoud
The seminar course address the theory and techniques of data assimilation, as well as their applications. Thus, by the end of the course the students will know the basics of data assimilation, data-assimilation algorithms, and how they can be employed in the real-world applications.

The seminar course is organized as following: each seminar meeting a scientific paper is presented by a student followed by a discussion between the course participants. Course grades are based on article presentation and active participation during discussions. The course is primarily intended for master students and beginning PhD students in mathematics.
