The candidate work will develop and implement diagnostic methods to assess the impact of the assimilated environmental observations on the subsequent analysis and forecasts. She/he will develop algorithms to summarize and display the results for system users. Additionally, she/he will employ advanced numerical and machine learning techniques to facilitate rapid and comprehensive characterization of the impact of the new observations on the forecast, and identify areas for improvement in the underyling data assimilation system or in the algorithms used to pre-process the observations.
This position requires the ability to conduct and assist in leading-edge research on the development and application of state-of-the-art methodologies for atmospheric data assimilation and forecasting systems and to use these methodologies to develop next generation probabilistic prediction systems primarily using NAVDAS-AR and Navy global and mesoscale modeling systems.
