About the course
The course provides knowledge about the basics of data assimilations used in operational forecast models such as 3D-Var and 4D-Var. Furthermore, basic theory of ensemble modelling and various methods for evaluating probability forecasts are studied. Additionally, we review how seasonal forecasts are produced and assess their current quality.
