Dr Lars Nerger
Leader of Data Assimilation Team at Alfred-Wegener-Institut Helmholtz-Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung (AWI)
Lars Nerger is a senior research scientist at AWI. He performs research
on ensemble-based data assimilation algorithms for nonlinear systems and
applies these to ocean physics and biogeochemistry and to coupled models
in the Earth system. He leads the development of PDAF (Parallel Data
Assimilation Framework), the open-source software for ensemble data
Role in project
Lars Nerger will lead work package 2 on the "SEAMLESS prototype".
Further he will coordinate the implementation activities into PDAF (e.g.
ensemble variational schemes, ensemble generation methods) and ensure
that these will be distributed as open source software.
