Current Group Structures and Members

Deutscher Wetterdienst is a federal institution with a strong business area of research. The department for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) has about 115-120 scientists in house in four divisions (55-60 permanent). There are 7 leading scientists directly reporting to the NWP department head and/or head of research, including the four division heads. All other scientists report to the four division heads in my department:

  • FE11 Division Head on Data Assimilation and Predictability
  • FE12 Division Head on Observations Modeling and Verification
  • FE13 Division Head on Numerical Modeling
  • FE14 Division Head on Physical Parametrization and Dispersion Modeling
  • Hans-Ertel Center (HErZ) DWD-Theme-Co-Leader Reanalysis
  • Hans-Ertel Center (HErZ) DWD-Theme-Co-Leader Data assimilation
  • Hans-Ertel Center (HErZ) DWD-Theme-Co-Leader Modelling & Parametrization

Also, there are several PhD students in my group.

We have regular meetings within NWP:

  • Division Heads (once to twice per month)
  • Division Member Meeting (once to twice per month or weekly)
  • Routine Meeting Coordination (every Tuesday 9-10am)
  • Group meetings, e.g. of the DA-Algorithm Group, RADAR Group, Satellite Group, Ensemble Group, …

and for coordinating development and operations of NWP within DWD:

  • KG NWV (coordination group numerical weather prediction) led by head of NWP

Our development is taking place in a network of partners including

  • the Max-Planck-Institute (MPI-M),
  • the German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ),
  • Deutscher Wetterdienst
  • the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT),
  • the COSMO Consortium for Small Scale Modelling with the weather services of Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Romania, Greece, Russia, Poland, Israel.
  • the climate center C2SM in Switzerland
  • the Hans-Ertel-Centre (HErZ) in Munich, Bonn/Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin
  • German Research Center for Geosciences (GfZ) Potsdam
  • Many further Universities …

We have an intensive interaction with these institutions and many scientists in different steering groups, working groups and committees. There are international and national coordination groups:

  • COSMO Steering Committee (COSMO-STC) (2-3 times a year)
  • ICON-D5 Directors Group (with C5 participating) (every 3 months)
  • ICON-C5 Coordination Group (every two weeks)
  • ICON-Seamless Coordination Group (4-6 weeks)

ICON-Seamless Working Group Meetings

  • Atmosphere,
  • Atmosphere-Land,
  • Atmosphere-Ocean,
  • Data Assimilation

ICON-Consolidated Meetings

We run yearly workshops and training:

  • ICCARUS (ICON/COSMO/CLM/ART User Seminar) in March
  • COSMO General Meeting (COSMO-GM) in September
  • ICON Training Course in the fourth quarter of the year

as well as further workshops and symposia in cooperationwith partners, e.g. the

  • International Symposium on Data Assimilation (ISDA)

PhDs Students (and some selected Master and Postdocs)

Supervision of PhD studentships often takes place within a team of supervisors, particularly at Reading University and Imperial College, where I have been heavily involved. It is usually expected that the first official supervisor is employed at the university where the PhD student will defend their thesis. The traditional concept of a “doctoral father or mother” can be difficult to attribute to a single individual, as there may be multiple mentors. Additionally, in our department at DWD, we have many researchers working in postdoctoral positions (currently more than 50), who are not listed here.
