Chaotic dynamics and the role of covariance inflation for reduced rank Kalman filters with model error

Other literature type, Article English OPEN
Grudzien, Colin; Carrassi, Alberto; Bocquet, Marc;

<p>The ensemble Kalman filter and its variants have shown to be robust for data assimilation in high dimensional geophysical models, with localization, using ensembles of extremely small size relative to the model dimension. However, a reduced rank representati... View more
