Model-data fusion Model: - Process representation - Subjective, incomplete - Capable of interpolation & forecast Observations: - ‘Real world’ representation - Incomplete, patchy - No forecast capability Fusion: Optimal combination (involves model-obs mismatch & strategy to minimise) Analysis: - “Best of both worlds” - Identify model weaknesses - Forecast capability - Confidence limits

Choices in model-data fusion Target variables – what model quantities to vary to match observations – e.g. initial conditions, model parameters, time-varying model quantities, forcing Target variables – what model quantities to vary to match observations – e.g. initial conditions, model parameters, time-varying model quantities, forcing Cost function – measure of misfit between observations and corresponding model quantities e.g. J(targets) = (H(targets) - obs) 2 + (targets - priors) 2 Cost function – measure of misfit between observations and corresponding model quantities e.g. J(targets) = (H(targets) - obs) 2 + (targets - priors) 2 Fusion method - search strategy Fusion method - search strategy Batch (non-sequential) e.g. down-gradient, global search Batch (non-sequential) e.g. down-gradient, global search Sequential e.g. Kalman filter Sequential e.g. Kalman filter Approach and issues will differ to some extent between disciplines – e.g. numerical weather prediction vs terrestrial carbon cycle

The Ensemble Kalman filter Ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) – sequential method that uses Monte Carlo techniques; error statistics are represented using an ensemble of model states.

Predicted and observed discharge 11 unimpaired catchments in Murrumbidgee basin 25-year time series: Jan 1981 to December 2005 (Forward run with priors, no assimilation)

12
Model-data synthesis approach: - State and parameter estimation with the EnKF - Assimilate NDVI and monthly catchment discharge Why Kalman filter? - Can account for model error (stochastic component) - Consistent statistics (uncertainty analysis) - Forecast capability (with uncertainty) Issues: - Time-averaged observations in EnKF (e.g. monthly catchment discharge) - Specifying statistical model (model and observation errors) - KF (sequential) vs batch parameter estimation methods? (using Levenberg-Marquardt method; also OptIC project)

Choice of cost function Evans (2003) – review of parameter estimation in biogeochemical models - “it was hard to find two groups of workers who made the same choice for the form of the misfit function”, with most of the differences being in the form of the weights. Evans (2003) – review of parameter estimation in biogeochemical models - “it was hard to find two groups of workers who made the same choice for the form of the misfit function”, with most of the differences being in the form of the weights. Evans (2003) and the OptIC project emphasise that the choice of cost function matters, and should be made deliberately not by accident or default.
