Author Biography

Seon Ki Park is Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering and Director of the Severe Storm Research Center at the Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea. He obtained a Ph.D. in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma, M.S. and B.S. in Meteorology from the Seoul National University, Korea. He had worked as a research scientist at University of Oklahoma, University of Maryland and NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center. Liang Xu is a meteorologist in the data assimilation section, Marine Meteorology Division, Naval Research Laboratory in Monterey, CA. In the past several years, Dr. Xu and his team have been developing, testing, and transitioning the US Navy's weak constraint mesoscale atmospheric four dimensional variational (4D-Var) data assimilation system, COAMPS-AR, to operation. He is also working on the data assimilation aspects of the land surface processes.
