A Generalized Version of the Fields by Information Blending (FIB) Technique,
ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION RESEARCH FACILITY (NAVY) MONTEREY CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
This report describes a generalized version of the Fields by Information Blending FIB technique for generating a scalar analysis. Several highly successful versions of the FIB were developed for operational use at the Fleet Numerical Weather Central. These versions are restricted to the analysis of a particular variable such as sea level pressure, surface winds, or sea surface temperature on a fixed grid projection such as the FNWC 63 x 63 polar stereographic projection. The generalized version described in the report can be used for the analysis of any scalar variable on a prescribed but variable rectangular domain. The report includes a detailed discussion of the underlying principles of the FIB and a basic evaluation of this generalized version for some selected test cases.
