POMOR student at the 3rd International School “Operational models and methods of data assimilation for continuous analysis and forecasting of the state of the World Ocean”

The 3rd International School for Young Scientists "Operational models and methods of data assimilation for continuous analysis and forecasting of the state of the World Ocean" was held from September 30 to October 5, 2019 at the Marine Hydrophysical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Sevastopol. More than 20 young scientists were selected to participate, three of them from St. Petersburg State University (two from the Department of Oceanology and one, Anastasia Frolova, from POMOR).

 

Leading experts from Russia, Great Britain, Germany, Israel, Cyprus and France gave lectures and workshops where new results and achievements of operational modelling and data assimilation were presented. Anastasia worked with the NEMO Black Sea model and its data visualization. She also learned how to work with the MEDSLIK model, which helps to determine oil spill trajectory and to find wrecked yachts.
