CliSAP successfully finished in 2018. Climate research continues in the Cluster of Excellence "CLICCS".

CRG Climate System Data Assimilation

The CliSAP research group (CRG) 'Data assimilation in the climate system' combines numerical models with observations through data assimilation. The group’s overall goal is to contribute to the understanding of the dynamics of the large-scale ocean circulation. We are especially interested on the ocean’s role in seasonal-to-decadal variability and predictability.

Further details of our work can be found on the group’s website at the Institute of Oceanography.
