In 2019, the Chinese Meteorological Administration (CMA), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF) and US Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) will jointly hold an international workshop in Beijing, China on radiative transfer models in support of satellite data assimilation. The specific goals of this workshop will be:
Reviewing the current capabilities of fast radiative transfer models.
Understanding new requirements on radiative transfer models for satellite data assimilation.
Prioritizing new developments of superfast computation in atmospheric and surface radiative transfer processes.
Please see this sheet for more information. This workshop is by invitation only.
