The Impact of Altimeter Sampling Patterns on Estimates of Background Errors in a Global Wave Model

Greenslade, Diana J M; Young, Ian


One of the main limitations to current wave data assimilation systems is the lack of an accurate representation of the structure of the background errors. One method that may be used to determine background errors is the observational method of Hollingsworth and Lönnberg. The observational method considers correlations of the differences between observations and the background. For the case of significant wave height (SWH), potential observations come from satellite altimeters. In this work,...[Show more]
