Welcome to the JCSDA 9th Science Workshop

College Park, MD, May 24-25, 2011

Objectives of the workshop
Objectives of the Workshop

  • The JCSDA supports scientific development work in satellite data assimilation with internally directed funds in each of the JCSDA partners, as well as with external grants awarded via a competitive process open to the broader scientific community (NOAA/FFO in FY10, NASA/Roses in FY11).

  • The JCSDA science workshop aims at facilitating the coordination between these multiple efforts.

  • It is also an opportunity for scientists to give feedback(s) and influence future directions of the JCSDA (through the breakout discussions).


  • Posters/Coffee Breaks: In front of room 2400 (near registration desk). Please hang posters early.

  • Lunch: Adele Stamp Student Union Building: Food Court

  • Picture Taking: Right before lunch (1st day) outside building

  • Dining: Many options in College Park, MD or in DC.

  • UMD Shuttle: 104 shuttle from Green line metro (runs every 10 to 15 minutes from 6:00am to 3:00am).

  • Wireless Access: 100 accounts have been distributed (with username and passwords)

  • Presentations loading: Please do it asap (see IT person). Permission requested to post them online on JCSDA web site. Posters to be posted as well.
