Data Assimilation and Optimal Observing Systems Design Experiments in Massachusetts Waters: Adaptive Sampling

PI: George Karniadakis, MIT

Project Number:2008-R/RD-36

Start Date:2008-02-01End Date:2010-01-31

Proposal Summary

Data assimilation for ocean forecasting remains a great challenge in physical oceanography. In this project, the researchers are developing and demonstrating new fast adaptive sampling schemes through field measurements. These techniques will be used to monitor the extended regions of Massachusetts Bay/Cape Cod Bay and to support coastal prediction and management in the region.
