Middle Atmosphere Analysis
To support the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The applicant will work with scientists in the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office to incorporate limb-sounder data into the assimilation system. Initial focus will be on temperature retrieved from the Microwave Limb Sounder on EOS-Aura, but will expand to other instruments and other quantities. Work will involve construction of suitable observation operators and error covariance models for the limb-sounder data, along with numerical experimentation to assess impacts of these data and the accuracy of the resulting analyses.
Working knowledge of middle atmospheric dynamics and physics. Working knowledge of Fortran 90, IDL, GrADS and other scientific software. Experience working with multi-node computing. Working knowledge of middle atmospheric data types and their accuracy, data assimilation, and instrument data characteristics.
Working knowledge of limb sounder data.
Requires a PhD or MS in Atmospheric Sciences, Physical Sciences or Mathematics.
