Data assimilation techniques, developed in the last two decades mainly for weather prediction, produce better forecasts by taking advantage of both theoretical/numerical models and real-time observations. In this paper, we explore the possibility of applying the data-assimilation techniques known as 4D-VAR to the prediction of solar flares. We do so in the(More)
This paper focuses on the role of sensitivity analysis in studies of water transport in the environmental and geophysical sciences. Sensitivity analysis is useful in model development to determine how changes in parameter input will affect a model's response. It is also used in data assimilation to incorporate observations into a model. The adjoint method(More)
