Participants and lecturers of the 2023 data assimilation training course

Data assimilation training @ Univ. of Reading 2024

Each year DARC and NCEO offer in-person training on data assimilation. The intensive week-long course introduces the commonly used data assimilation algorithms derived from a common framework and explores the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The theoretical lectures are complemented by practical sessions allowing participants to obtain hands-on experience of the concepts covered.

The next training course will take place 7th-10th May 2024. Registration is now closed.

Information on this year’s course content can be found here.

In-person DA training courses were previously run in 2023, 2022, 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016. Click on the links for more information and to access the material.

The course is complementary to those run at ECMWF on Data assimilation and EUMETSAT/ECMWF NWP-SAF satellite data assimilation.

ONLINE COURSE: Dare to discover data assimilation (data assimilation minus the maths)

If you are interested in learning about data assimilation but do not have a background in mathematical concepts or any specialist subject knowledge, then this free course is perfect for you. The course provides an introduction to the basic concepts of data assimilation and is particularly useful if you are a user of data assimilation products (e.g., reanalyses) or want to explore the possibilities of data assimilation for new applications.

The course is open for participation at any time.
