  • Application and comparison of Kalman filters for coastal ocean problems : an experiment with FVCOM 

    Chen, Changsheng; Malanotte-Rizzoli, Paola; Wei, Jun; Beardsley, Robert C.; Lai, Zhigang; Xue, Pengfei; Lyu, Sangjun; Xu, Qichun; Qi, Jianhua; Cowles, Geoffrey W. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-05-13)
    Twin experiments were made to compare the reduced rank Kalman filter (RRKF), ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF), and ensemble square-root Kalman filter (EnSKF) for coastal ocean problems in three idealized regimes: a flat bottom ...
  • A new mechanism for the generation of quasi-zonal jets in the ocean 

    Wang, Jinbo; Spall, Michael A.; Flierl, Glenn R.; Malanotte-Rizzoli, Paola (American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-16)
    A simple barotropic quasi-geostrophic model is used to demonstrate that instabilities radiated from an unstable eastern boundary current can generate zonal striations in the ocean interior with realistic wavelengths and ...
