    • You will develop the next generation of state-of-the-art predictive and assimilative models of the deep atmosphere, extending from the surface to the exobase.
    • You will support the section?s mission to deliver on the Navy?s specific short- and long-term goals for improved numerical prediction and specification of operationally relevant aspects of the deep atmospheric environment.
    • You will develop new state-of-the-art global numerical models of the neutral atmosphere extending from the ground to 500 km altitude, for future high-resolution forecasting of the deep atmosphere for DoD terrestrial and space-weather applications.
    • You will develop new aspects of the models? dynamical cores and of the upper-level physical parameterizations embedded within these models, with the latter responding realistically to solar and geomagnetic inputs.
    • You will work with teams associated with related external capabilities that couple to the model, and coupling layers to drive downstream applications, such as ionospheric products.
    • You will conduct experiments on massively parallel high-performance computers to test and refine new features that help the team improve the predictive capabilities and numerical efficiency of the systems for future operational applications .
    • You will collaborate effectively with other research teams located at NRL DC and elsewhere working on other components, such as the model?s lower altitudes, high-altitude data assimilation capabilities, and physical coupling to ionospheric models.
    • You will attend workshops and regular meetings as required for the purposes of reporting to in-house managers, program sponsors, scientific colleagues, and other relevant stakeholders.
