A multi-scale three-dimensional variational scheme (MS-3DVAR) is implemented to improve the effectiveness of the assimilation of both very sparse and high-resolution observations into models with resolutions down to 1 km. The improvements are realized through the use of background error covariances of multi-decorrelation length scales and by reducing the inherent observational representativeness errors. MS-3DVAR is applied to coastal ocean data assimilation to handle the wide range of spatial… CONTINUE READING
