Detailed Description

The Ocean data assimilation (DA) and Ensemble Framework

The DA framework implements ensemble capability in MOM6. Currently, this framework is enabled using the cpp directive ENSEMBLE_OCEAN. The ensembles need to be generated at the level of the calling routine for oda_init or above. The ensemble instances may exist on overlapping or non-overlapping processors. The ensemble information is accessed via the FMS ensemble manager. An independent PE layout is used to gather (prior) ensemble member information where this information is stored in the ODA control structure. This module was developed in collaboration with Feiyu Lu and Tony Rosati in the GFDL prediction group for use in their coupled ensemble framework. These interfaces should be suitable for interfacing MOM6 to other data assimilation packages as well.
