Data Assimilation Problems in Glaciology

Daniel Shapero, Polar Science Center, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington

PSC’s Daniel Shapero is participating in the Applied Physics Laboratory Seminar Series — Fall 2016. He will give a talk describing some of the work he has done in the field of inverse or data assimilation, both in the methodology and the application to major outlet glaciers in Greenland, as well as future work. Daniel will also give a brief overview and demo of a software library he developed called icepack for modelling glacier flow and for solving data assimilation problems.

Daniel’s presentation will be Thursday, October 6, 2:30 PM in 512 Benjamin Hall, UW. Coffee/Tea, cookies, and conversation will begin prior to the event at 2:00PM
