From Tomoko Matsuo <email@example.com>.
This joint workshop will be held primarily for the benefit of students but also anyone who is interested in learning basics of data assimilation and space science applications. The basics of data assimilation will be presented step-by-step, how each component (model, observation, principles of statistical inference such as Bayes's rule, covariances etc) works together to yield an optimal analysis. We will offer *three* 30-minute tutorial presentations that cover different DA applications in space sciences, ranging from the ionosphere and high-latitude ionospheric electrodynamics to the radiation belt.
Opening Remarks by Delores Knipp (moderator)
Basics and Ionospheric Application - GAIM (30 min) by Ludger Scherliess
Basics and Applications to High-latitude Ionosphere Electrodynamics - AMIE (30 min) by Tomoko Matsuo
Basics and Applications to Radiation Belt - DREAM (30 min) by Josef Koller
OPEN DISCUSSION & QUESTIONS
(2) Announcement of the fifth issue of the CAWSES-II TG4 newsletter.
From Michi NISHIOKA <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The fifth CAWSES-II TG4 newsletter is issued. It can be downloaded from the CAWSES-II Wiki page at http://www.cawses.org/wiki/images/4/4f/TG4_newsletter_issue5.pdf
The purpose of this newsletter is to make more communications among scientists related to the CAWSES-II Task Group 4 (particularly between those of the atmosphere and the ionosphere). The editors would like to invite you to submit the following articles to the TG4 newsletter. Our newsletter has four categories of the articles:
- Articles: ~500 words and four figures (maximum)-----on campaign, ground observations, satellite observations, modeling, workshop/conference/symposium report, etc
- Highlights on young scientists: ~200 words and two figures-----on his/him own work related to CAWSES-TG4
- Short news: ~100 words-----announcements of campaign, workshop, etc
- List of planned workshop
Category 2 (Highlights on young scientists) helps both young scientists and TG4 members to know each other. Please contact the editors for recommendation of young scientists who are willing to write an article on this category. Your suggestions and comments on this newsletter are also very welcome.
