[Met-jobs] Job publication: Climate Researcher on Propagation of Uncertainties (R2)
the Earth Sciences Department of Barcelona Supercomputing Center
(BSC-ES), led by Prof Francisco Doblas-Reyes, the climate
prediction group, led Dr. Pablo Ortega and Dr. Louis-Philippe
Caron, aims at developing climate prediction capability for time
scales ranging from a few weeks to a few decades and from regional
to global scales. The group is also part of the development team
and a key user of the EC-Earth global climate model
) and as such collaborates closely with
all the members of the EC-Earth consortium.
The position offered is funded by the ESA contract CMUG-CCI+,
whose main goal is to ensure that the ESA-CCI data products are
developed and provided in a form most useful for climate analysis
and modelling work.
The successful applicant will be responsible for the completion of
Task 3.4, dedicated to the propagation of observational
uncertainties to climate models scales in a set of variables that
are relevant for the study of wild fires.

- Apply method developed in
Bellprat et al. (2018) to investigate how observational
uncertainties propagate to space-time means.
- Compare the propagated
observational uncertainties from the ECV CCI product to that
derived from differences in different observational products.
- This task will require
interaction with each of the CCI ECV teams to determine the best
currently available knowledge of error correlation scales in
space and in time for the different ECVs.
