Abstract:

The projects goal is to advance ocean data assimilation into a quasi-operational tool for studying ocean circulation. Observing the complete state of the ocean is difficult owing to its turbulent nature and sparse and limited measurements. This project will establish a routine description of the global ocean by optimally combining available observations using a general circulation model, in order to assess, monitor, and understand ocean circulation. The effort further aims to demonstrate the practical utility of ocean observing systems by developing applications of such syntheses.
