Forecast Divergences of 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 "NMC method." This method examines the forecast divergence component of the background error growth by considering differences between forecasts of different ranges valid at the same time. In this paper, the NMC method is applied to global forecasts of significant wave height...[Show more]
