The JCSDA is excited to announce the first public release of JEDI-MPAS to the community.
JEDI-MPAS is a multi-component software package that provides everything that is needed to run data assimilation applications for the atmospheric core of the Model for Prediction Across Scales (MPAS). The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the JEDI core team jointly develop JEDI-MPAS.
MPAS is a collaborative project for developing atmosphere, ocean and other earth-system simulation components for use in climate, regional climate and weather studies, whose primary development partners are Los Alamos National Laboratory and NCAR. The atmospheric core of MPAS solves the the fully compressible nonhydrostatic equations of fluid motion on an MPAS unstructured Voronoi mesh and offers a subset of the Advanced Research WRF physical parameterizations. MPAS is used at NCAR for research into Earth-System predictability, spanning both weather and climate.
JEDI-MPAS employs MPAS’s native meshes, including regional and variable-resolution meshes, and performs I/O with native MPAS-A files.

There are major milestone events linked to global policy agendas taking place in 2021, including the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP26, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) COP15, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration. These will bring a new set of challenges and opportunities for the international community. During GEO Week 2021, we will present the multidisciplinary activities of the GEO Work Programme that address these areas. This will be assessed through the lens of nexus thinking to highlight how the use of Earth observations in different sectors contributes to these efforts. Find out more here:
On behalf of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), it is my pleasure to announce the 14th Asia-Oceania Group on Earth Observations (AOGEO) Symposium to be held virtually from 10 to 12 November 2021. The Symposium is being organized by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology-Japan (MEXT) with support from the GEO Secretariat. Find out more here
