Data Assimilation: The Ensemble Kalman Filter by Geir Evensen

By Geir Evensen

Info Assimilation comprehensively covers info assimilation and inverse tools, together with either conventional kingdom estimation and parameter estimation. this article and reference specializes in a variety of well known info assimilation tools, resembling susceptible and powerful constraint variational equipment and ensemble filters and smoothers. it's validated how the several equipment may be derived from a standard theoretical foundation, in addition to how they fluctuate and/or are on the topic of one another, and which houses symbolize them, utilizing numerous examples.Rather than emphasize a specific self-discipline akin to oceanography or meteorology, it provides the mathematical framework and derivations in a fashion that is universal for any self-discipline the place dynamics is merged with measurements. the math point is understated, even though it calls for wisdom of easy spatial records, Bayesian facts, and calculus of diversifications. Readers also will enjoy the advent to the mathematical tools used and special derivations, which can be effortless to stick to, are given through the ebook. The codes utilized in a number of of the information assimilation experiments can be found on an internet web page. specifically, this website incorporates a whole ensemble Kalman clear out assimilation approach, which kinds a terrific place to begin for a consumer who desires to enforce the ensemble Kalman filter out with his/her personal dynamical model.The concentrate on ensemble tools, similar to the ensemble Kalman filter out and smoother, additionally makes it an excellent connection with the derivation, implementation and alertness of such recommendations. a lot new fabric, specifically on the topic of the formula and answer of mixed parameter and nation estimation difficulties and the final houses of the ensemble algorithms, is on the market the following for the 1st time.

33) where in the last line, we changed the dummy variable for the integration to x3 . 31). 34) f = Mi(2) [Cψψ (x1 , x2 )]. e. the measurement term, is constant in the integration with respect to x2 . 34) are verified for i = 1, . . 35) d − M(4) [ψ (x4 )] a dx1 dx2 = 0, or since this must be true for all δψ we must have f Wψψ (x1 , x2 ) ψ f (x2 ) − ψ a (x2 ) + MT (3) [δ(x1 − x3 )]W d − M(4) [ψ a (x4 )] = 0. 36) This is the Euler–Lagrange equation for the variational problem, of which the solution ψ a must be a minimum of J .

2 Prediction of error statistics In Evensen (1994a) it was shown that a Monte Carlo method can be used to solve an equation for the time evolution of the probability density of the model state, as an alternative to using the approximate error covariance equation in the EKF. For a nonlinear model where we appreciate that the model is not perfect and contains model errors, we can write it as a stochastic differential equation as dψ = G(ψ)dt + h(ψ)dq. 33) This equation states that an increment in time will yield an increment in ψ, which in addition, is influenced by a random contribution from the stochastic 40 4 Sequential data assimilation forcing term h(ψ)dq, representing the model errors.

34) we get the Euler–Lagrange equation of the form f ψ a (x) − ψ f (x) = MT (3) [Cψψ (x, x3 )]W d − M(4) [ψ4a ] . 37) is that ψ a is contained on both sides of the equality sign. 39) M . 40) Thus, we get the influence functions or representers r(x) defined as f (x, x3 )]. 42) − W b M(4) [r 4 ], T because of the linearity of M. 45) or MT (4) [r 4 ] + C which is a linear system of equations for b. 41) the equation becomes f M(3) MT (4) [Cψψ (x3 , x4 )] + C b = d − M(4) [ψ f (x4 )]. 45). 24), we have f f Mi(3) MT j(4) [Cψψ (x3 , x4 )] = Cψψ (xi , xj ).
