Remarks There is excessive numerical, diapycnal mixing in the default third-order, upstream-bias (U3) scheme. The second- and fourth-order centered differences schemes are dispersive and overshoot. The MPDATA (Multidimensional Positive Definite Advection Transport Algorithm) is monotonic and maintains the extrema. However, there is some deep-water modification. The split schema (QUICK operator is split into advective and diffusive components) is the best, showing few spurious maxima and minima. However, the diffusion operator (along geopotentials) has some stability problems that we need to address.
ROMS Tides Least-Squares Fit A ROMS state variable,, can be represented in terms of its time mean,, plus a set of -tidal harmonics of frequency,. The unknowns,, and coefficients are evaluated by minimizing the least-squares error function defined by: Minimization subject to the additional constraints,, result in a linear set of equations:
Remarks The detiding algorithm (AVERAGES_DETIDE) is working nicely. As the number of tidal constituents increases, the time needed to resolve the beat frequencies increases. That is, the beat period (sum of all frequencies) becomes longer. For example, if only M2 and S2 components are used, the beat period is around 28-days (spring-neap cycle). Therefore we need to run for a least 28 days to resolve the harmonic coefficients in matrix A. I recommend you have a single NetCDF for tidal forcing and save a copy before using the detiding option since this algorithm add new variables to it.

Remarks We are still developing and fine tuning this algorithm (OBS_SENSITIVITY). The mathematical formulation is similar to that of Zhu and Gelaro (2008). It is a powerful tool to quantify the sensitivity of the IS4DVAR system to the observations. It can help us to determine the type of measurements that need to be made, where to observe, and when: Adapting Sampling.
IS4DVAR Balanced Operator Covariances: EAC The cross-covariances are computed from a single sea surface height observation using multivariate physical balance relationships. Free-surface (m) 2 Temperature (Celsius) 2 Salinity (nondimensional) 2 U-velocity (m/s) 2 V-velocity (m/s) 2 Z = -300m Arango, Moore, Zavala

Remarks We are still developing and fine tuning this algorithm (BALANCE_OPERATOR). The approach is similar to that proposed by Weaver et al. (2006). This is a multivariate approach to constraint the background and model error covariances in the 4DVar system using linear balance relationships (T-S empirical relationships, linear equation of state, hydrostatic and geotrophic balances). It allows the unobserved variables information to be extracted from directly observed quantities. State vector is split between balanced and unbalanced components.
