ECCO Summer School 2019

The Consortium for "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) will host a summer school for graduate students and early career scientists on ocean state estimation. The school introduces the tools and mathematics of ocean state and parameter estimation and their application to ocean science through a mix of foundational lectures, hands-on
tutorials, and projects.


The school aims to help nurture the next generation of oceanographers and climate scientists in the subject matter so that they may utilize the ECCO products and underlying modeling/estimation tools most effectively to further advance the state-of-the-art in ocean state estimation and ocean science.

Topics covered: Data assimilation (global & regional); state & parameter estimation; adjoint method; sensitivity analysis; algorithmic differentiation; ocean modeling; ocean dynamics and variability; ocean’s role in climate; global ocean observing system (satellite and in-situ); physics of sea level; ocean mixing; sea ice physics; ice sheet-ocean interactions; ice shelf dynamics; ocean tides; cyberinfrastructure & data analytics.
