Short summary
KIAPS has been developing a next-generation numerical weather prediction model and an advanced data assimilation system. We recently implemented a GPS-RO data processing system and then tested the processed data within an ensemble-based data assimilation system. The systems for the data processing and the data assimilation are fully coupled and cycled with a numerical weather prediction model. As a result, data processing and assimilation work properly to give reasonable innovation.
