EUMETSAT Research Fellowship (Assimilation of scaled projected states from advanced IR sounder radiances) at the Met Office

The Research Fellow will join the Satellite Applications team at the Met Office (Exeter, UK). The Fellow will collaborate with Met Office scientists, playing a key role in research and development activities to improve the geophysical interpretation of satellite information and its assimilation into the Met Office weather forecast model. The Fellow’s work will in particular be directed towards the exploitation of innovative Level-2 products -- “transformed retrievals” or Scale Projected States (SPS) -- from advanced infrared sounder radiances for numerical weather prediction. Such products retain most of the information from observations over thousands of spectral channels into a small number of components.

The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with satellite data assimilation experts to test the effectiveness of assimilating these new products against standard radiance assimilation techniques. The results of this research will provide insight on best practices to exploit the observations from forthcoming advanced infrared sounders such as MTG-IRS and IASI-Ng.

The overall purpose of the Research Fellowship is to work alongside Met Office scientists taking active part in research and development activities to improve the geophysical interpretation of satellite information and its assimilation into the Met Office weather forecast model.
