NG001:
Advances in Data Assimilation, Predictability and Uncertainty Quantification





Session ID#: 22354

Session Description:
Geophysical processes are typically sparsely observed, and their dynamics are nonlinear, so that the statistics are non-Gaussian. Successful and efficient data assimilation (DA), uncertainty quantification (UQ) and prediction require that these characteristics be directly addressed.   This session focuses on ideas and advanced techniques for DA, UQ and predictability, for example: variational methods, Kalman filters, adjoint and ensemble sensitivity, hybrid techniques, Monte Carlo sampling, particle filters, as well as linear approximations to non-Gaussian/nonlinear applications. Contributions are welcome 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.
