Job description

NOA1778 Support Scientist-Aerosol Data Assimilation

Job Locations US-MD-College Park
 
 
 

Overview

I.M. Systems Group, Inc. (IMSG) is seeking candidates to support the Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) on the assimilation of aerosol observational data in the NCEP atmospheric data assimilation systems. The candidate would be working within the Data Assimilation Team on building an advanced aerosol assimilation capability into the Gridpoint Statistical Interpolation (GSI) in the short term, with an evolution toward using components from the Joint Effort for Data Assimilation Integration (JEDI) being led by the Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation.

 

Responsibilities

  • Modify GSI to process aerosol background fields and coordinate with JEDI team about incorporating aerosol observations into JEDI/UFO development.
  • Estimate aerosol observation and background errors, and explore the possibility of generating and utilizing ensemble information, including multivariate information between aerosols and other atmospheric variables.
  • Run sensitivity experiments to demonstrate that the new codes perform correctly (single observation tests), followed by parameter tuning and optimization.
  • Validate the resultant aerosol analysis against external analyses and independent datasets.

Qualifications

PhD, MS or relevant experience in Computer Science, Atmospheric Science, or other related physical or mathematical science.
