1 MODEL ERROR ESTIMATION Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere Research Benefits to NOAA:This is a novel research approach, providing an optimal estimate of the atmospheric state, model error estimation and the uncertainty of simulated/forecasted atmospheric processes. The knowledge about model error gained as a result of this research could be used to improve NOAA forecast models and observation operators. Theoretical basis Theoretical framework for model error estimation is provided by the estimation theory. Model error estimate is obtained as a solution of an optimization problem, where discrepancies between the model and the data are minimized. This approach is a generalization of standard data assimilation methodologies, since observations are used not only to correct the errors in the initial conditions (IC) but the model errors (ME), as well. Goals Develop a general model error estimation methodology, applicable to any mathematical model Employ all available observations (conventional surface and upper-air, satellite, radar, GPS, raingage) Estimate and correct model errors in: - forecast models (Eta, RAMS, WRF, GEOS) - observation operators (satellite radiative transfer models, radar reflectivity models) Determine uncertainty of the model error estimate in the form of model error cross- covariance Methodology STATE AUGMENTATION APPROACH used in the frameworks of: 4-DIMENSIONAL VARIATIONAL (4DVAR) data assimilation method (provides model error estimate only) ENSEMBLE DATA ASSIMILATION (EnsDA) method (provides model error estimate and uncertainty of the estimate) Types of model error Serially correlated error (bias) Lateral boundary conditions error Parameter error (error in the model’s empirical parameters) Publications Vukicevic, T., T.
