A ranking of the top collegiate Vocational & Trade Education Programs in New York has been released by the Community for Accredited Online Schools (AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org) for 2016-2017. Comparing data on student success and support services, program variety and nearly a dozen other qualitative and quantitative measures, the site highlighted a total of 64 colleges and universities for excellence in trade and vocational education in the state. Top scoring schools include SUNY Canton, Trocaire College, Farmingdale State College, Rochester Institute of Technology, Touro College, Monroe Community College, Niagara County Community College, Mohawk Valley Community College, Tompkins Cortland Community College and SUNY Broome Community College. “U.S. Department of Labor projections show many trade and vocational industries growing at a faster-than-average rate through the year 2024,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “New York provides an excellent learning environment for trade and vocational learners; over five dozen schools in the state are on our list for providing a top-quality education and a jump-start to a job with career placement and other success support programs.” The Community for Accredited Online Schools sets strict criteria for their rankings. Schools must qualify for the list by being regionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit entities. For the Best Trade & Vocational Education Programs in New York list, the site also required schools offer career placement and counseling services to students. All qualifying schools are scored and ranked based on additional school-specific data, such as student-teacher ratios and financial aid offerings.

We show how the 3DVAR data assimilation methodology can be used in the astrophysicsl context of a two-dimensional convection flow. We study the way in which this variational approach finds best estimates of the current state of the flow from a weighted average of model states and observations. We use numerical simulations to generate synthetic observations of a vertical two-dimensional slice of the outer part of the solar convection zone for varying noise levels, and implement 3DVAR when the covariance matrices are diagonal and proportional to the identity matrix. Our simulation results demonstrate the capability of 3DVAR to produce error estimates of system states that can be more than two orders of magnitude below the original noise level present in the observations. This work illustrates the importance of applying data to obtain accurate model estimates given a set of observations. It also exemplifies how data assimilation techniques can be applied to simulations of stratified convection. © 2013 The Authors.
