PODEn4DVar-based radar data assimilation scheme: formulation and preliminary results from real-data experiments with advanced research WRF (ARW)

The Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD)-based ensemble four-dimensional variational (4DVar) assimilation method (referred to as PODEn4DVar) is a hybrid assimilation method that exploits the strengths of both the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) and the 4DVar assimilation method. Its feasibility and v...
