. Recent developments in radar signal processors allowed for improvement of clutter suppression methods by using spectral clutter suppression techniques ( Siggia and Passarelli 2004 ). To compensate for the effect of notching it was proposed to use Gaussian Model Adaptive Processing (GMAP; Siggia and Passarelli 2004 ), which interpolates over the notched spectral lines. The limitation of spectral filtering techniques is the effect of spectral leakage, caused by finite sample length, on the spectral

to update each grid point using only observations falling within a preset influence radius ( Sakov and Bertino 2011 ; Houtekamer and Mitchell 1998 ). In our experiments, the localization support radii vary between 25 and 1000 km. The filters were also equipped with the covariance inflation technique, which is commonly used to increase the spread of the forecast or analysis ensembles. Luo and Hoteit (2011) followed a robust filtering strategy and interpret it as an EnKF equipped with different

1. Introduction Usual data assimilation systems for numerical weather prediction (NWP), using Kalman filter or variational techniques, are based on a statistical combination of observations and a background, which is usually a short-term forecast. This statistical estimation requires the specification of spatial covariances of errors in these two kinds of information. As presented in Hollingsworth (1987) and Daley (1991 , p. 125), the role of background error covariances is to spatially

of filtered equations. In this paper we focus on split-explicit integration techniques for the compressible nonhydrostatic equations, and propose new procedures that are suitable for integrating these equations when cast in conservative (flux) form. In semi-implicit schemes, the terms responsible for sound-wave propagation are averaged in time, producing an implicit set of equations for variables at the new time level that requires the solution of a three-dimensional Helmholz equation for

1. Introduction The ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF; Evensen 1994 ) is a Monte Carlo approximation to the traditional filter of Kalman (1960) that is suitable for high-dimensional problems such as numerical weather prediction (NWP). One of the strengths of ensemble Kalman filters is the ability to evolve in time estimates of forecast error covariance, using the flow-dependent information inherent in an ensemble of model runs. Localization is a technique by which the impact of

(PF) technique will be summarized in appendix B . In section 2 , the two-stage filtering method in this paper will be explained and it will be related to a simplification of the well-known Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering (RBPF; Casella and Robert 1996 ; Doucet et al. 2000b ). In section 3 , we test the proposed method using the Lorenz-96 model by Lorenz (2006) and assume the “perfect model” scenario where the only source of the model error is the uncertain parameters. In section 4

intermingle higher-frequency acoustic modes with lower-frequency modes of physical interest. However, care must be taken with this approach to ensure that energy does not artificially accumulate in these acoustic modes due to initialization or physics imbalances, nonlinear interactions, or model numerics. In this paper, we focus on techniques to filter acoustic modes through 3D divergence damping for this latter category of schemes, in which horizontally propagating acoustic modes are treated with

regional model of ocean dynamics appears to be the best method of deriving accurate ocean currents at a regional scale (10–200 km). Techniques for filtering MCC currents will be a vital cog in this combination of remote-sensing technologies. Accurate measurement and prediction of surface currents are required for search and rescue, pollution monitoring, and management of marine industries. 2.

inflation ( Whitaker and Hamill 2012 ), though the latter can mitigate the effects of many different kinds of errors in ensemble filtering, like sampling errors. Covariance inflation techniques attempt to account for model error in the analysis, but they do not reduce the model error. Additive inflation is analogous to stochastic parameterization, the difference being that random perturbations are added to the forecast before every assimilation cycle, versus being added at every time step of the
