Assimilation of the AVISO Altimetry Data into the Ocean Dynamics Model with a High Spatial Resolution Using Ensemble Optimal Interpolation (EnOI)

  • M. N. Kaurkin
  • R. A. Ibrayev
  • K. P. Belyaev


A parallel realization of the Ensemble Optimal Interpolation (EnOI) data assimilation (DA) method in conjunction with the eddy-resolving global circulation model is implemented. The results of DA experiments in the North Atlantic with the assimilation of the Archiving, Validation and Interpretation of Satellite Oceanographic (AVISO) data from the Jason-1 satellite are analyzed. The results of simulation are compared with the independent temperature and salinity data from the ARGO drifters.
