  • Application of a hybrid EnKF-OI to ocean forecasting 

    Counillon, François; Sakov, Pavel; Bertino, Laurent (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-10-01)
    Data assimilation methods often use an ensemble to represent the background error covariance. Two approaches are commonly used; a simple one with a static ensemble, or a more advanced one with a dynamic ensemble. The latter ...

  • Sensitivity of remote sensing – derived phytoplankton productivity to mixed layer depth: Lessons from the carbon-based productivity model 

    Milutinović, Svetlana; Behrenfeld, Michael J.; Johannessen, Johnny A.; Johannessen, Truls (American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-01)
    Mixed layer depth (MLD) has long been recognized as having an important influence on underwater light budget and, thus, net primary productivity (NPP) of phytoplankton. The depth- and wavelength-integrated carbon-based ...
