Data Assimilation Program

The NCAR Data Assimilation Program seeks to accelerate data-assimilation research at NCAR and in the community through development of common tools and infrastructure, training of postdoctoral scientists and gentle coordination of NCAR data-assimilation activities.  Funding for the Data Assimilation Program presently covers a software engineer and a unique postdoctoral program that co-sponsors postdocs jointly with NCAR labs and externally funded projects.
