Work Package 2: Earth system data assimilation

Work Package Leaders: Stefan Kollet (FZJ) and Maik Thomas (GFZ)

 

The objective of this work package is to  develop and apply an Earth system data assimilation framework to improve models, provide best estimates of the current state of the Earth system, initialize predictions and design integrated Earth observing systems.

 

Tasks:

  • Task 2.1: Implementation of data assimilation in Earth system model compartments

Team Leaders: Lars Nerger (AWI) and Jan Saynisch (GFZ)

  • Task 2.2: Development of coupled Earth system data assimilation capacity

Team Leaders: Lars Nerger (AWI) and Harry-Jan Hendricks-Franssen (FZJ)

 

Expected results:

  • Provision of an Earth system data assimilation framework
  • Guidelines for best practices in coupled Earth system data assimilation
  • Recommendations for future Earth system data assimilation activities in the Helmholtz Association
