Reanalysis without Radiosondes Using Ensemble Data Assimilation

  title={Reanalysis without Radiosondes Using Ensemble Data Assimilation},
  author={Jeffrey S. Whitaker and GILBERT P. COMPO and Xue Wei and Thomas M. Hamill},
Studies using idealized ensemble data assimilation systems have shown that flow-dependent background-error covariances are most beneficial when the observing network is sparse. The computational cost of recently proposed ensemble data assimilation algorithms is directly proportional to the number of observations being assimilated. Therefore, ensemble-based data assimilation should both be more computationally feasible and provide the greatest benefit over current operational schemes in… CONTINUE READING
