Super-resolution data assimilation

  title={Super-resolution data assimilation},
  author={S'ebastien Barth'el'emy and Julien Brajard and Laurent Bertino and Francçois Counillon},
Increasing the resolution of a model can improve the performance of a data assimilation system: first because model field are in better agreement with high resolution observations, then the corrections are better sustained and, with ensemble data assimilation, the forecast error covariances are improved. However, resolution increase is associated with a cubical increase of the computational costs. Here we are testing an approach inspired from images super-resolution techniques and called "Super… Expand


An Efficient Dual-Resolution Approach for Ensemble Data Assimilation and Tests with Simulated Doppler Radar Data
It is shown that the flow-dependent and dynamically evolved background error covariances thus estimated are effective in producing quality analyses on the high-resolution grid and significantly reduce the computational cost of the EnKF analysis. Expand
Mixed-Resolution Ensemble Data Assimilation
A modified local ensemble transform Kalman filter (LETKF) that takes its background covariance from a combination of a high-resolution ensemble and a low- resolution ensemble is presented and tested. Expand
On the representation error in data assimilation
This paper is an attempt to consolidate the terminology that has been used in the earth sciences literature and was suggested at a European Space Agency workshop held in Reading in April 2014. Expand
Ocean forecasting of mesoscale features can deteriorate by increasing model resolution towards the submesoscale
Higher resolution models do not necessarily provide improved dynamical solutions in submesoscale dynamics, which means in practice, higher-resolution systems will provide analyses with enhanced spatial detail but will be less skilful at predicting the evolution of the mesoscale features. Expand
Efficient data assimilation for spatiotemporal chaos: A local ensemble transform Kalman filter
A practical method for data assimilation in large, spatiotemporally chaotic systems, a type of “ensemble Kalman filter”, in which the state estimate and its approximate uncertainty are represented at any given time by an ensemble of system states. Expand
DeepSD: Generating High Resolution Climate Change Projections through Single Image Super-Resolution
DeepSD is presented, a generalized stacked super resolution convolutional neural network (SRCNN) framework for statistical downscaling of climate variables and augments SRCNN with multi-scale input channels to maximize predictability in statisticalDownscaling. Expand
Data assimilation as a learning tool to infer ordinary differential equation representations of dynamical models
It is shown how the same goal can be directly achieved using data assimilation techniques without leveraging on machine learning software libraries, with a view to high-dimensional models. Expand
DeepDownscale: A Deep Learning Strategy for High-Resolution Weather Forecast
This paper proposes and evaluates a strategy based on a deep neural network to learn a high-resolution representation from low-resolution predictions using weather forecast as a practical use case and shows significant improvement when compared with standard practices. Expand
Will high-resolution global ocean models benefit coupled predictions on short-range to climate timescales?
Abstract As the importance of the ocean in the weather and climate system is increasingly recognised, operational systems are now moving towards coupled prediction not only for seasonal to climateExpand
Using a resolution function to regulate parameterizations of oceanic mesoscale eddy effects
Abstract Mesoscale eddies play a substantial role in the dynamics of the ocean, but the dominant length-scale of these eddies varies greatly with latitude, stratification and ocean depth. GlobalExpand
