About JCSDA's Seminar Series
The JCSDA seminar series includes presentations on satellite observing instruments, radiative transfer models for use in satellite data assimilation, algorithms for deriving information on the Earth's atmosphere, oceans, and land surface from satellite observations, advances in data assimilation techniques, preparations for assimilation of data from new satellite instruments, and impacts of satellite data on weather and climate predictions. The seminars are about 1 hour in duration (including discussion period) and are held monthly, usually on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 2 PM, and are open to the public.
The audience for the seminars generally consists of remote sensing researchers from NOAA/NESDIS, data assimilation experts and modelers from NOAA/NCEP and NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Global Modeling and Assimilation Office, and students/faculty from the University of Maryland.
Most seminars are scheduled on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. unless noted otherwise. Titles are tentative, and are subject to change.
