[Seminar on 22 Feb] Land Surface Role in Weather and Climate Prediction

Dr. Gianpaolo Balsamo 

European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts  

Room 303, Keyan Building

10 am, 22 Feb, 2017 

Dr. Gianpaolo Balsamo is a team-leader and senior scientist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF), an intergovernmental organization supported by 34 States, and based in the UK. He collaborates with a team of leading experts at ECMWF and in different universities and research institutions world-wide. His research interests are devoted towards an improved understanding of the Earth system and its water, energy, and carbon cycles, with particular focus on the role of the surface. His main professional goal is to enhance the capacity of computer models used for weather and seasonal prediction to represent the Earth Surface and its interaction with the Atmosphere. His education background includes a degree in Physics, a doctorate in Meteorology (PHD) and a professorial accreditation (HDR/Habilitation). He has previously worked for Italian, French and Canadian Meteorological Centres, with focus on land surface modelling (soil, snow, vegetation, lakes and rivers), surface-atmosphere interactions (planet boundary layer, ocean mixed-layer, atmospheric coupling) and data assimilation (variational methods and Kalman filters) for Earth Observations (remote-sensing and in-situ).
