Head: Illia Horenko (Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland) and Sebastian Reich (University of Potsdam, Germany)

Co-ordination: Thomas von Larcher (Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany, [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.])

Administration: Ulrike Eickers and Sarah Jaeger (Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany, +49-(0)30-838-75415, [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.], [Email protection active, please enable JavaScript.]

Due to a rapid development of measurement instruments and techniques, as well as due to the growing complexity of simulation model outputs, adequate and efficient assessment of information hidden in experimental and simulation data plays increasingly important role in all areas of fluid mechanics, meteorology and climate research.

The main focus of the summer school will be on providing a necessary theoretical and practical background for understanding and proper usage of the modern methods of time series analysis and data assimilation.

Further emphasize will be placed on explaining essential mathematical and statistical concepts, accompanied by computer exercises demonstrating their application to meteorological, climatological and fluid-mechanical problems. Participants should have a basic knowledge of linear algebra, analysis and elementary concepts from probability theory (e.g., properties of probability, probability distribution, expectation value and variance). Computer exercises will be based on MATLAB, participants will need to use their own LapTops and to have an installed version of MATLAB on them.

Program: See the file for the daily program.


Venue: Harnack-Haus, Ihnestrasse 16, 14195 Berlin, Germany, http://www.harnackhaus-berlin.mpg.de/

Accomodation: Accomodation is self-organized by participants.


Registration: To register, please send an E-Mail including your name and affiliation to the administration (Ulrike Eickers and Sarah Jaeger). The Deadline for registration is 2 May.


Fees: The workshop is free of charge. This also includes Coffee Breaks and Lunch Buffets. Accomodation costs are to be borne by the participants.


In case questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers.
