We held the 50th Data Assimilation Seminar at RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) on October 25. The seminar talk was given by Dr. Jing-Shan Hong from the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) in Taiwan.
In this seminar Dr. Hong's talked about his research applying a multi-scale blending scheme on continuous cycling radar data assimilation. He showed how using a multi-scale blending scheme he can take advantage of analysis from both a global and regional model to improve the prediction of accumulated rainfall and typhoon track forecasts. He also showed how the blending scheme can be used to remove accumulated bias from continuous cyclic data assimilation.
We would like to thank Dr. Hong very much for visiting us at RIKEN and we look forward to seeing him again in the near future!
