Dr. Fletcher is investigating different approaches to improve the background error covariance matrix in the NAVDAS-AR system as well as investigating possible new choices for moisture representation in the same system.  He is also investigating the differences in both the analysis and the first guess from the NOAA/NCEP data assimilation system compared to the NOAA/NESDIS temperature-humidity retrieval system for the hurricane Sandy test case.
