GIVES seminar - Will Mayfield (NCAR) - Data Assimilation and Ensemble Forecasting in Numerical Weather Prediction: Research and Operational Centers

SIAM would like to invite you to attend our next Government and Industry Vocation Exploration Series (GIVES) seminar at 10AM on 10/27. Students and faculty can choose to join us in-person in SCB 4113, or over zoom (our speaker will be virtual) at ( contact us for Zoom )

Our speaker will be Will Mayfield of NCAR. Note: if you are a student interested in the NCAR Graduate Visitor Program (see email from Joshua French on 10/6 regarding this program), or weather/climate math/stats applications in general, Will knows the director of the GVP personally so this is an excellent networking opportunity!

Title: Data Assimilation and Ensemble Forecasting in Numerical Weather Prediction: Research and Operational Centers.

Abstract: Accurate and timely weather prediction is an increasingly important service across all sectors of government and industry. Scientists and engineers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) perform cutting-edge research in the field of Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP), as well as evaluate potential innovations for the next-generational operational NWP systems. This talk will give a high-level overview of some of my current NCAR projects in data assimilation and ensemble approaches for NWP, as well as discuss the important tasks involved in the exchange between research and operations. In addition, we will discuss student opportunities at NCAR, in particular the Graduate Visitor Program.

Speaker bio: Will Mayfield holds bachelorís and masterís degrees in mathematics from Tarleton State University and is a PhD candidate at Oregon State University. Since January 2020, Will has worked as an Associate Scientist III at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO where he is a part of the Research Applications Laboratory as well as the inter-agency Developmental Testbed Center.
