POP-DART: An ensemble assimilation system for the parallel ocean program
Tim Hoar, NCAR, Boulder, CO; and J. Anderson, N. Collins, and B. Nadiga
The Data Assimilation Research Testbed (DART) and the Parallel Ocean Program (POP)
have been integrated to produce the POP-DART ocean ensemble data assimilation system.
POP-DART can assimilate a variety of in situ and remote sensing observations
of the ocean to produce ensemble analyses. The analyses can be used for
diagnostic studies of the POP model and the ocean or as initial conditions
for climate system predictions. Verifications of POP-DART using single observation
tests are presented. Results from long assimilations of in situ observations
of temperature and salinity are also presented.
