Assimilation of Satellite Observations to Improve Numerical Predictions in Global and Regional Models
The network of Earth observing satellites evolves from year to year, as do numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and data assimilation methods. It is therefore necessary to continue to evaluate the impacts of assimilating satellite observations using state-of-the-art methods in operations and research. This themed joint session will focus on recent advances in this area. Potential topics include the impacts on NWP of the increased volume and quality of data, the use of hyperspectral data, the reduced latency and use of four-dimensional data assimilation methods, and the assimilation of GOES/GOES-R data in regional models.
