  Information - AS1.02 Numerical Weather Prediction and Data Assimilation (General Session) (including Vilhelm Bjerknes Medal Lecture)

Event Information
The session welcomes papers on:

1) Data assimilation systems - progress in the development of data
assimilation systems for operational use, research on advanced data
assimilation methods such as ensemble Kalman Filtering and 4D-Var;

2) Observations - improved use of conventional data, modelling and
impact of new remote sensing data, observation error statistics,
network design and experimentation (OSE/OSSE);

3) Models - basic research and new developments in model dynamics,
physical parameterizations and numerical methods;

4) Verification and re-analysis activities - verification of model
components and operational NWP products against theories and
observations, regional and global re-analysis of past observations,
diagnosis of data assimilation systems;

5) Ensemble forecasts and predictability - strategies in ensemble
construction, model resolution and forecast range related issues,
applications to data assimilation.
