Prof. Roland Potthast, Head of Division FE 1 at DWD and project coordinator of the mFUND project ICamCloudOps will give an introduction to the project and explain how ICamCloudOps will advance the state of the art in cloud cover forecasting.
Dr. Walter Acevedo and Dr. Maria Reinhardt, research scientists at DWD, will explain the use of AI for cloud detection and modelling and discuss the assimilation of sky camera observations into weather models.
Dr. Frederik Kurzrock, energy meteorologist at Reuniwatt, and Dr. Leonhard Scheck, research area director at the Hans-Ertel-Centre for Weather Research will deliver talks about radiative transfer and cloud information retrieval using infrared sky imagers and radiation modeling for IR- and VIS-cams. Finally, Dr. Maria Reinhardt will conclude the webinar with details on combining VIS and infrared observations. We are looking forward to an interesting scientific discussion!
