We held the 48th and 49th Data Assimilation Seminars at RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) on July 27.
The first talk was given by Dr. Hironori Arai from the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo. He has been a visiting scientist with the Data Assimilation team here at RIKEN since May. He discussed his work in developing monitoring systems of greenhouse gas emissions in tropical rice cropping systems based on satellite remote sensing data.
The second talk was given by Professor Pierre Tandeo from IMT Atlantique in France. He presented his work on a review paper he is currently writing about the different methods in data assimilation to estimate the observation error covariance matrix (R) and model error (Q). He also discussed various applications on data-driven methods in geophysics, including a future project where he will be trying to predict the development of rogue ocean waves.
