Information will bring scientists and end users together One of the emerging techniques in the atmospheric to present and discuss many different applications of and related sciences is data assimilation—that is, the environmental data and modeling. The topics range optimal combination of forecasts and observations. across a broad spectrum of human activities, from This has been very successfully implemented for business planning and financial analysis to natural weather prediction and climate analysis, but it is clear resource management and energy use. The application of environmental information is generating many new now that similar methodology can provide improve- opportunities for research and employment for meteo- ments in other areas, such as atmospheric chemistry rologists, oceanographers, and hydrologists in the pri- and land modeling.
