21 Summary of basic characteristics of the MLEF  Developed using ideas from -Variational data assimilation (3DVAR, 4DVAR) -Iterated Kalman Filters -Ensemble Transform Kalman Filter (ETKF, Bishop et al. 2001)  Calculates optimal estimates of: - model state variables (e.g., air temperature, soil moisture, tracer fluxes) - empirical parameters (e.g., diffusion coefficient, drought stress) - model error (bias) - boundary conditions error (lateral, top, bottom boundaries)  Calculates uncertainty of all estimates (in terms of P a and P f )  Calculates information measures (e.g., degrees of freedom for signal, entropy reduction) Dusanka Zupanski, CIRA/CSU  Fully non-linear approach. Adjoint models are not needed.  Non-derivative minimization (finite difference is used instead of first derivative).  It can use Gaussan and non-Gaussian errors
