The basic analysis capability is the Fields-by-Information Blending FIB methodology. The FIB technique has been used successfully in many atmospheric and oceanic applications to date. The surface wind analysis capability, FIBUV, has been designed to use a concurrent sea-level-pressure analysis via a diagnostic balance relationship for first-guess information for both the winds and the spreading of the winds. The sea-level-pressure analysis capability FIBP has been designed to provide this first-guess information for FIBUV in that both analyses are done on a staggered grid where the grid locations for u, v and p have been chosen for optimum use of the diagnostic relationship.
