NG33A:
Advances in Data Assimilation, Predictabilit, and Uncertainty Quantification II Posters


Session ID#: 7275

Session Description:
Geophysical processes are typically sparsely observed and their dynamics are nonlinear, so that the state-space statistics may become non-Gaussian.  Successful and efficient data assimilation (DA) algorithms, uncertainty quantification (UQ) techniques and prediction require that these characteristics are directly addressed.  This session focuses on advanced techniques for DA, UQ and predictability, for example variational methods, Kalman and ensemble filters, adjoint and ensemble sensitivity, hybrid techniques, Monte-Carlo sampling, particle filters or linear approximation to non-Guassian/nonlinear applications.  This session welcomes contributions from all of the geosciences, as well as the mathematical and statistical communities, to share ideas that can be applied across the disciplines of the AGU and the larger scientific community.
