    This is a talk delivered at the Imperial College meeting on Stochastic Modeling in GFD, Data Assimilation and Non-equilibrium Phenomena on 11-4-2015.  This talk presents joint research by Chris Jones at UNC-CH and Naratip Santitissandeekorn on hybrid data assimilation methods.

  2. A Tutorial on Kalman Filters

    01 Jun 2016 | Contributor(s):: Colin James Grudzien

    This is an introduction to the Kalman filter, explaining some underlying assumptions, use and extensions of the method.This talk was given on 10-7-2015.

  3. Data assimilation for extreme ionospheric events: observing system experiments of the September 26, 2011 geomagnetic storm

    14 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Juan Durazo

    As increasingly sophisticated ground- and space-based technological systems that depend on the near-Earth space environment are being built, vulnerabilities to variations in the ionosphere are also increasing. These vulnerabilities are especially prominent during extreme space-weather events,...

  4. Hybrid EnKF and Particle Filter: Lagrangian DA and Parameter Estimation

    06 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Naratip Santitssadeekorn, Christopher KRT Jones

    Dealing with high dimensional systems is one of the central problems of data assimilation.  A strategy is proposed here for systems that enjoys a skew-product structure.   Christopher Jones, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, presents joint work with Naratip...

  5. Toward a hybrid particle-ensemble Kalman filter for assimilating data from Lagrangian instruments into high dimensional models

    30 Apr 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Elaine Spiller

    Presented by Elaine Spiller on 3-26-15Abstract:We discuss a recently proposed hybrid particle-ensemble Kalman filter for assimilating Lagrangian data, and apply it to a high-dimensional quasi-geostrophic ocean model. Effectively the hybrid filter applies a particle filter to the highly...

  6. Statistical Data Assimilation For Parameter Estimation In Costal Ocean Hydrodynamics Modeling

    30 Apr 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Talea Mayo

    Coastal ocean models are used for a variety of applications, including modeling tides and hurricane storm surge. These models numerically solve the shallow water equations, which are derived by depth integrating the Navier-Stokes equations. The inherent uncertainties in coastal ocean models are...

  7. Ionospheric weather forecasting using the LETKF

    23 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Juan Durazo

    We track the three-dimensional global distribution of electron density in the ionosphere using theLocal Ensemble Kalman Filter (LETKF) and the Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Electrodynamics GlobalCirculation Model (TIEGCM) by assimilating globally distributed electron density profiles. TheTIEGCM is a...

    23 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Andy Reagan

    Andy Reagan at UVM gives a talk about his masters work on uncertainty quantification and data assimilation to improve the numerical prediction of fluids in the thermosyphon. This talk will involve several data assimilation methods, including variational techniques, but will focus on LETKF....

  11. Extending the square root method to account for model noise in the ensemble Kalman filter

    25 Feb 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Patrick Raanes

    Presented by Patrick Raanes on 2-18-2015 Abstract:A novel approach to account for model noise in the forecast step of the Ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is proposed.  The core method is based on the approach of the analysis step of ensemble square root filters (ETKF), and...
