The NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) has developed an exact the adjoint of the Gridpoint Statistical Interpolation (GSI) analysis scheme developed at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The GSI is expected to become the operational analysis scheme at both NCEP and GMAO in the near future. In this presentation, we discuss the development of the adjoint of GSI and show observation sensitivity results for a pre-operational version of the system. Availability of the tangent linear scheme provides an explicit means of assessing not only the fidelity of the adjoint, but also the effects of nonlinear processes in the GSI itself. Results indicate that the GSI adjoint provides accurate assessments of sensitivities with respect to observations of wind, temperature, satellite radiances and, to a lesser extent, moisture. Sensitivities with respect to ozone observations are quite linear for the ozone fields themselves, but highly nonlinear for other variables. The accuracy of observation sensitivities in the presence of highly nonlinear penalty terms for negative moisture and super saturation are also assessed.
