The 56th Data Assimilation Seminar

We held the 56th Data Assimilation Seminar at RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) on 1 February.

The talk was given by Dr. Tie Dai from State Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (LASG), Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Dr Dai talked about his work developing an aerosol data assimilation system based on the NICAM model and LETKF. He showed how he has been able to successfully assimilate observations from both the MODIS satellite and Himawari 8 satellite to produce an aerosol analysis for the improvement of short-range aerosol forecasting over Eastern Asia.

We would like to thank Dr Dai very much for visiting us here in Kobe and for the lively discussion about his work! We wish him well with his research in the future.
