Education and Training: Researchers from the data assimilation groups at CIRA actively participate in training of individuals as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) award intended to increase the number of experts in the field of data assimilation.
The training is being been done in the form of a 1-year paid internship located at CIRA in Fort Collins, Colorado, and it covers both, practical and theoretical aspects of data assimilation. Interns in this position can learn how to use several NOAA models and novel data assimilation techniques and travel to several NOAA labs in the country to interact with other DA scientists.

In addition, some of our researchers travel to conduct teaching in data assimilation summer schools hosted by several national and international institutions like Ewha Womans University in Seoul, South Korea [Link]. When available, educational opportunities are listed in the News section and in the CIRA Employment Opportunities site.
