2nd NAWDIC international workshop, 30 June 2023, ECMWF, Reading (UK)

The 2nd NAWDIC international workshop was held at ECMWF, Reading, UK following the 2023 AR Reconnaissance workshop. The main purpose of the workshop was to further coordinate the international NAWDIC components, to identify synergies, and to review the timeline towards the campaign implementation in January/February 2026. The workshop included status overview talk from the different international NAWDIC components, break out sessions, as well as an extended case study discussion. Below we provide an overview of the program and the workshop report. The next NAWDIC international workshop is planned to happen in summer/fall 2024.
