JCSDA Summer Colloquium on Satellite Data Assimilation


MONDAY, JULY 27, 2015TOFRIDAY, AUGUST 7, 2015
Note:  Detailed logistical information for the Colloquium will be provided to the individuals selected for participation at the time they are notified of their selection.

 

Registration Deadline extended to April 30th, 2015

 

Program Announcement

The NASA/NOAA/DoD Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) is pleased to announce a Summer Colloquium on Satellite Data Assimilation in 2015 engaging graduate students and individuals with early postdoctoral appointments in the science of data assimilation for the atmosphere, land and oceans.  The program will include internationally recognized experts in data assimilation, satellite data use and assimilation, along with opportunities for students to interact with the lecturers in an informal setting.  The objective of the program is to foster the education of the next generation of data assimilation scientists.

 

Colloquium Topics

The following topics will be covered during the Colloquium:

  • Data assimilation fundamentals including variational and ensemble techniques
  • Satellite data applications including infrared and microwave
  • Satellite data assimilation techniques
  • Overview of atmospheric, ocean and land data assimilation
  • Overview of the global observing system.

 

Workshop Details

Lodging and shuttle – lodging for the workshop is at the Hilton Fort Collins, and we’ve completed our block of reservations for this event.  Please contact me if you have issues or otherwise with your reservation.  For those of you arriving in Colorado through Denver International Airport, you should have confirmed reservations with Greenride shuttles, which will take you directly from DIA to the Fort Collins Hilton – again contact me with questions or concerns.  More information about the shuttle process is available on Greenride’s website, online at: http://www.greenrideco.com/

As a favor, if you could contact Matt Rogers either via email (matthew.rogers@colostate.edu) when you check in to the Hilton, it would help us make sure all our participants have arrived safely.  

Transportation to and from the Hilton to the meeting location will be by shuttle van – two each per day.  We’ll have more logistics on shuttle vans in the coming week, but essentially you’ll meet your van at the front door, and be whisked away in comfort to your meeting, and will be returned to your hotel at the end of the day in the same fashion.

Getting around Fort Collins after hours – the Hilton Fort Collins is conveniently located next to Fort Collins’ arterial MAX public transit route, which connects throughout Fort Collins.  All participants will be issued weekly transit passes, permitting unrestricted travel throughout Fort Collins on both the MAX and other routes.  If you’re bringing spouses or children along, they will need to purchase their own pass (children under 18 do ride free, however) – weekly passes are available for $10 at any of the three transit centers along the MAX corridor.  The Fort Collins Bike Library, also accessible from a short walk from the MAX, offers bike rentals as well.  More information about transit is online at:

http://www.ridetransfort.com/

https://www.fcbikelibrary.org/index.php

Meals – breakfasts and lunches are catered on-site at the meeting location, and your evening and weekend meals will be reimbursed via a per diem, set up earlier (in your email to Holli.)  More details on meal reimbursement will be provided at the workshop.  Fort Collins hosts a variety of great dining options, many of which are conveniently located to the MAX route. 

Meeting-wise logistics – you will wish to bring a laptop to the workshop.  Power and wired ethernet will be available – please bring an ethernet adapter for your computer if one is needed (we will provide ethernet cables.)  We will have Matlab licenses for practicum exercises – more details on these activities will be forthcoming in the next week.  As part of your workshop activities, you will provide a student presentation – please bring along a USB thumb-drive-type device to transfer your presentation (in PDF or PPT format) to the presentation machine.  

Please see the schedule of activities for the workshop.  We have also created an online Google calendar with these details in case you’d like to sync with your computer or mobile device – this calendar is online at:

https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=halqu3ts7ut2c2uva5nlrqs71k%40g…

On the calendar, you’ll notice that Wednesday afternoons for both weeks have open blocks – this is when we’ll be taking advantage of Fort Collins’ location to enjoy some sightseeing.  The second Wednesday we’ll be making the journey to Rocky Mountain National Park; the first Wednesday we’ll be offering either a trip to visit some of Fort Collins’ famous craft breweries or a tour of historic Fort Collins, with locations to be determined.

If this will be your first time visiting Colorado, please be aware that the altitude and dryness of Colorado’s climate is a real concern.  Be prepared to stay hydrated by bringing a refillable water bottle, and please wear sunscreen anytime you’re outdoors.  For the trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, having some form of rain gear (e.g. a poncho or a rain suit, as opposed to an umbrella) will help you cope with a sudden afternoon thunderstorm.
