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.
