WS-2: Simulating an altimetry observing system from a global high resolution model

A recent experiment to test the impact of a future spaceborne Doppler surface current observing system in combination with an altimetry observing system.

High-resolution Ocean-General-Circulation-Models (OGCMs) provide realistic scenes of ocean circulation which are extremely useful to build, test and evaluate the impact of an observating system for data assimilation. This is the common technique known as Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) where a non-assimilated model (a “free run”) is considered as a ground-truth used to generate realistic – but synthetic – observations….  read more.
