What is a T-Profile?
Looking outside of one's own (academic) box is part of the program of the Geo.X Young Academy: Since innovative solutions to complex problems require several disciplines, it is beneficial for problem solvers to speak different "languages" to ease understanding and allow for varying points of view. In order to attain better insight not only into your professional experience and academic knowledge, but also your interfacing expertise, interdisciplinary skills and projects. The vertical bar must be filled with relevant information about your academic studies. In the horizontal bar, you can map competencies and activities that transcend or do not relate directly to your field of study.
Project: GNSS Reflectometry Data Assimilation into Severe Weather Predictions
This joint research project of GFZ with University Partners and the German Weather Service, studies the wind retrieval and assimilation of the space-borne reflectometry data into the current global weather models with the purpose of efficient and improved storm predictions. The study will be carried out in retrieving wind information as the prognostic variable of weather models as fast and accurate as possible. Setting up data assimilation algorithms, GNSS reflectometry data assimilation into weather forecast models for storm scale predictions will be addressed.
