We consider error propagation near an unstable equilibrium state (classified as an unstable focus) for spatially uncorrelated and correlated finite-amplitude initial perturbations using short(up to several weeks) and intermediate (up to two months) range forecast ensembles produced by a barotropic regional ocean model. An ensemble of initial perturbations… (More)
