Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is the development and application of new methods of investigation for the use of Lagrangian data. Special attention is given to the development of new techniques for the assimilation of Lagrangian data in Eulerian numerical models. Another objective is to improve previous results on statistical prediction of particle transport using data analysis and stochastic models. To develop methods in the framework of the ODDAS DRI objectives, namely to use information from drifting sensors to improve the prediction of spreading in the velocity field. The project has the following specific objectives 1 To develop and apply new techniques for assimilation of Lagrangian data in regional ocean circulation models. 2 To investigate statistical prediction of particle transport using data analysis and stochastic models.
