Data assimilation using OpenPALM

nasri |  0 comment |  

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 2 days / (14 hours)




This training course aims to teach how to develop data assimilation applications using the coupler OpenPALM. After introducing data assimilation, the participants learn to build step by step a data assimilation chain based on a simplified ocean model. Finally, different variational approaches are presented.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists and numerical analysts who wish to develop or use modular data assimilation applications based on numerical models.


It is recommended to have taken the training session Code coupling using OpenPALM or to be familiar with OpenPALM before attending this training course.

This study focuses on Hall-effect thrusters, which were first invented in the 1960s. Although such systems have been extensively studied, the detailed physics of the magnetized plasmas in these thrusters is very complex and several plasma processes that have direct influence on the thruster...Read more
