  Information - ST8 Data assimilation in space sciences (co-listed in PS)

Event Information
Data assimilation is an integral part of any modern terrestrial weather prediction system. Even historical weather research uses data assimilation. The only debate left today is about what methods are best and how to implement them in different situations. In space sciences we are in the beginning of implementing data assimilation methods but rapid progress is being made and results from operational implementations of data assimilation schemes are already available for evaluation. In this session we plan to review the state of data assimilation in space sciences and present the latest results. Papers on the any aspects of data assimilation are welcome.
