    Responsibilities

    • Assimilate observations into global Earth system models to characterize the kinematics, dynamics, physics, and energetics of atmospheric processes.
    • Collect, analyze, evaluate and interpret meteorological data to understand regional variations in the planetary boundary layer and their impacts on global energetics, weather prediction, hydrology, and pollution transport.
    • Analyze and assimilate data from instruments on satellites, aircraft, balloons and ground sites, especially passive and active remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere and surface.
    • Develop methods to optimize the use of multiple observation types in order to improve the representation of the planetary boundary layer in global data assimilation models, and to evaluate their impact on the prediction of weather and climate.
    • Contribute to the design and development of future space missions by performing Observing System Simulation Experiments that assess the impact of new and improved sensors on analyses and predictions of the planetary boundary layer.
