ESSEM COST Action ES1404: A European network for a harmonised monitoring of snow for the benefit of climate change scenarios, hydrology and numerical weather prediction

Training School on Snow Observations and Data Assimilation in Bormio, 12-16 March 2018

COST action ES1404 on snow, http://harmosnow.eu will arrange a spring school on snow, focusing on snow data assimilation. The training school will be held in Bormio, Italy in March 12-16, 2018.

Objectives
To learn and discuss the state-of-the art and developing snow data assimilation methods for NWP, hydrology and detailed snowpack models:
  • Importance of snow data assimilation for forecast and applications
  • Availability, uncertainties and usage of observations for the models
  • Methods of objective analysis and data assimilation
  • Using of observations for model evaluation

  • Target audience
  • PhD and graduate level students who want to learn data assimilation methods for snow
  • Modellers who want to advance their skill in data assimilation and understand the snow observations better
  • Observation specialists who want to learn how the observations are used in models
  • The participants should have a basic knowledge in snow physics and numerical methods. Applicants from COST inclusiveness countries (link) are welcome

    Funding
    COST will cover all local expenses including accommodation, food and the field trip. The flight tickets and local transport (up to 300 euros) will be covered by application when necessary. In special cases the travel budget can be extended.

    Contents
    Lectures, practical exercises and a field trip on
  • Introduction to NWP/hydrology/snowpack models and their snow data assimilation
  • Methods of data assimilation
  • Snow observations applicable for data assimilation in the models
  • Snow-related applications

    Credits
    COST ES-1404 considers that the school programme is equivalent to 3 ECTS.
