The 9th Stratospheric Processes And their Role in

Climate (SPARC) Data Assimilation


11-13 June 2012
Socorro, New Mexico, USA


The 9th Stratospheric Processes And their Role in Climate (SPARC) Data Assimilation workshop will be held in Socorro, New Mexico during 11-13 June 2012. This is the latest in a series of annual meetings which brings data assimilators and users of assimilation products together with experts in modelling, measurements and process studies. For descriptions of previous SPARC-DA workshops, please check the meeting reports in SPARC Newsletters No. 26, 28, 30, 34 and 36:

 Abstracts are welcome on any aspect of data assimilation or usage of assimilation products.  This year's themes and invited speakers are:

1) Stratosphere/troposphere coupling and the Stratospheric Network on Assessment of Predictability (SNAP) (Martin Charron, Environment Canada; Peter Hitchcock, University of Cambridge)
2) Assessment of middle atmosphere analyses and the SPARC Reanalysis/analysis Intercomparison Project (S-RIP) (Karen Rosenlof, NOAA; Markus Rex, Alfred Wegener Institute)
3) Gravity waves and their representation in middle atmosphere models and analyses (Joan Alexander, Northwest Research Associates; David Siskind, Naval Research Laboratory)
