BoM/MO JEDI OPS meeting, 9 Dec, 2020

Present: Chiara Piccolo, Stefano Migliorini, David Simonin, Douglas Boyd, Peter Steinle, Fiona Smith, Andy Smith, Jin Lee, Susan Rennie

Timeline of NG-OPS and NG-DA - David

  • Aiming to deliver NG-OPS by March 2023
    • to be used in 3DVar UM-JEDI and 3DVar LFRic-JEDI
    • assumption is that LFRic and NG-DA will be implemented together
    • plan to use ODB
  • The NG-OPS and NG-DA projects are driven by supercomputer changes
    • avoid porting UM
    • Plan A: 4DVar using LFRic-JEDI and hybrid
    • Plan B: 4DEnVar and possibly EnKF for LAM

Possible areas of contribution

  • Best if partners take on workpackages which are not in the critical path
    • work undertaken can be considered in stretch packages
  • 3 possible work areas,
    1. Currently C++ JOPA calls Fortran. Helpful if all Fortran can be replaced with C++
    2. FSOI capability
      • UKMO is not planning to implement FSOI
      • depending on whether the global DA uses 4DVar or 4DEnVar the implementation of FSOI would be radically different: adjoint-based in the case of former and ensemble-based in the case of the latter
    3. Currently the 1DVar used in radiance processing is only an interface to Fortran. Useful if Fortran is replaced with C++. This is not entirely a coding exercise,
      • UKMO would like to use OOPS 1DVar
      • implement different minimisation method: e.g. Levenberg-Marquardt
      • Instead of processing column by column there might be a way to process all at once
      • TL and Adj need to written in C++
      • desirable to merge radiance and GPSRO 1DVar processing
  • Already Jorge Bornemann (NIWA) has taken on a piece of work
    • will start in Jan, 2021
    • working on
      • IAU
      • LFRic-JEDI interface to Fortran (?)

Information sharing

  • Chiara to ask Keir if NG-OPS and NG-DA project board meeting can be shared
  • Adam Maycock in charge of TIDA (?)
  • To improve communication with partners about NGMS we need to talk to Keir
  • Meet again in Feb/Mar before Partnership Board meeting
    • BOM may be in a position to give available resources
