Series: International Geophysics

The International Geophysics book series has been designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of geophysics. Intended to cover the entire range of the discipline, topics are included from a diverse range of areas such as seismology, meteorology, hydrogeology, and climate and ocean dynamics. For more information about the series of for details of how to submit a book proposal, please contact the Series Editors or the Acquisitions Editor, Susan Dennis at susan.dennis@Elsevier.com.

Volume 105. Data Assimilation in Meteorology and Oceanography

Published: 1st August 2014 Editors: F. Bouttier Olivier Talagrand
The assimilation of appropriate data in meteorology, oceanography, and atmospheric chemistry is central to achieving correct modelling of phenomena. The practice and theory of data assimilation has grown in the past 20 years into a separate branch of science of bewildering complexity to the newcomer. Data Assimilation in Meteorology and Oceanography is a well-crafted introductory book. It presents an up-to-date and clear overview of the field, and strikes the right balance between theory, practical applications, and implementation algorithms and examples.
