Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) Summer School 2019: Global Ocean State & Parameter Estimation: From Methods to Applications in Oceanographic Research
May 19-31, 2109
Friday Harbor Laboratories, University of Washington, Friday Harbor, WAECCO Summer School
The Consortium for "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) will host a summer school for graduate students and early career scientists on global ocean state estimation in support of climate research. The school introduces the tools and mathematics of ocean state and parameter estimation and their application to ocean science through a mix of foundational lectures, hands-on tutorials, and projects. In doing so, the school aims to help nurture the next generation of oceanographers and climate scientists in the subject matter so that they may utilize the ECCO products and underlying modeling/estimation tools most effectively to further advance the state-of-the-art in ocean state estimation and ocean science.
Topics covered include data assimilation (global and regional), state and parameter estimation, adjoint method, sensitivity analysis, algorithmic differentiation, ocean modeling, ocean dynamics and variability, ocean's role in climate, global ocean observing system (satellite and in-situ), physics of sea level, ocean mixing, sea ice physics, ice sheet-ocean interactions, ice shelf dynamics, ocean tides, cyberinfrastructure and data analytics.
The 2019 ECCO Summer School application deadline is December 17, 2018.
