Project #2

Monday, March 24, 2014

Dr. Fletcher's newest project is an NSF grant to investigate the impacts of using Gaussian and logarithmic transform approaches compared to a lognormal based Bayesian approach firstly in the CIRA 1-Dimensional Optimal Estimator (C1DOE) but eventually this work will be extended to the WRF-GSI system and then combinations of both.  Also as part of the award Dr. Fletcher is developing the incremental 4DVAR for geometric errors and an associated Bayesian quality control measure.  As part of this project Dr. Fletcher will be joined by a postdoctoral fellow in the Spring of 2013.  This project is also in collaboration with Dr. Andrew Jones and Mr. John Forsythe
