I.M. Systems Group, Inc. (IMSG) is seeking candidates to support the Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) to work on the Global Forecast Dropout Prediction Tool (GFDPT) project. The candidate will work with scientists in EMC’s data assimilation (DA) team and collaboration partners to enhance the current monitoring capabilities of the GFDPT system, including the use of the Proactive Quality Control (PQC) approach within the Global Data Assimilation System (GDAS). Software applications will be used to identify forecasts with noticeably degraded forecast skill from the Global Forecast System (GFS), analyze these so-called dropout cases, track the location(s) of the forecast error(s), and identify possible source(s) associated with conventional and/or satellite radiance data.
