The 4th SPP colloquium took place from June 4-6, 2019 in Bad Aibling near Munich with the focus topic "Data assimilation in Geosciences". Highlight of the colloquium were 3 keynote lectures about data assimilation theory and practical applications on geoscientific data. A couple of oral presentations and an extended poster session completed an inspiring and productive meeting.
The three keynote sessions were presented by the following speakers:
Dr. Lars Nerger, AWI Bremerhaven: "Ensemble Data Assimilation - Methods, Applications, and Software".
This introduction was followed by a hands-on tutorial for all attendees.
Dr. Sabrina Sanchez, MPS Göttingen: "Geomagnetic data assimilation: Perspectives for probing the Earth's core dynamics"
Dr. Tomoko Matsuo, Dept. of Aerospace Engineering Sciences/University of Colorado: "Coupled Thermosphere - Ionosphere Data Assimilation"
More information about all oral and poster presentation will be coming up soon.
During the AGU fall meeting in Washington D.C. from Dec 10-14, 2018 on the DFG booth "Research in Germany", we presented our research highlights. Besides a couple of oral and poster presentations of the project and its scientific results we presented our priority project to an interested scientific community. Cotton bags, flyers and beermats with our SPP logo were highly appreciated by the visitors of our booth.
The following pictures give you an impression of our booth at the AGU Fall Meeting.
15 science proposals have been approved by DFG, among them 5 new and 10 continuative projects.
The third SPP colloquium took place at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen from 11-13 June 2018. The special topic was Geomagnetic Field. Vincent Lesur and Julien Aubert (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris) gave invited talks.

The Copernicus' journals Annales Geophysicae and Solid Earth have opened the joint special issue "Dynamics and interaction of processes in the Earth and its space environment: the perspective from low Earth orbiting satellites and beyond". Submissions related to this topic have been received. Both journals provide open access to published articles (links: Annales Geophysicae, Solid Earth).
The Winter School focused on current activities related to the SPP's topics, emphasising the use of Swarm data. The interactive program was mainly conducted by early career researchers. They offered lectures presenting their work and PhD students and Postdocs actively participated in solving problems and contributing to small projects.

The second SPP colloquium was organised in close collaboration with the Jacobs University Bremen and took place at the Hotel Munte in Bremen from 14-16 June 2017. The special topic was Magnetosphere/Induction. Rumi Nakamura and Alexey Kuvshinov were invited speakers.
Participants of the 2nd DynamicEarth Colloquium in Bremen from 14-16 June 2017 (GFZ, T.A. Siddiqui)
The Summer School provided the theoretical and practical background for the work with Swarm data. Courses have been given by senior researchers, and students actively participated in practicals to solve problems and contribute to small projects primarily related to Swarm mission topics. The Summer School was devoted to students on Master, Doctoral, or early career phase levels that are involved in one of the funded projects from SPP 1788.
After most of the projects in the SPP 1788 DynamicEarth have actively started, a first SPP Colloquium took place at the Gustav-Stresemann-Institut (GSI) in Bonn from 27-29 June 2016 (http://www.gsi-bonn.de/en/). The special topic of this colloquium was Gravity/Thermosphere. Invited speakers at the colloquium were: Heike Peter, Eelco Doornbos and Torsten Mayer-Guerr.
