KeyPersonnel and their role in NOAA OSSE testbed
Dr. R. Atlas, NOAA/AOML: Lead development of testbed, and along with a team of scientists, led by Dr. Lars Peter Riishojgaardat the JCSDA and Dr. TomislavaVukicevicat AOML: conduct and evaluate global and mesoscale OSSEs.
Dr. Yuanfu Xie, NOAA/ESRL/GSD: Lead global OSSEs using the ESRL OSSE system and participate in regional OSSEs for UAS and HFIP.
Drs. SharanMajumdar and David Nolan, UM/RSMAS: Generate mesoscale nature runs and participate in hurricane OSSEs.
Dr. Ross Hoffman, AER: Chair of External Advisory Group.
Dr. G.D. Emmitt, SWA: Simulation of Wind lidar and other observing systems.
