Chechelnitsky, Michael Y. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-06)Data assimilation methods, such as the Kalman filter, are routinely used in oceanography. The statistics of the model and measurement errors need to be specified a priori. In this study we address the problem of estimating ...
