Atmospheric Satellite Observations: Variation Assimilation and Quality Assurance provides a useful reference to satellite data assimilation. Drawing from her 30+ years researching, supervising graduate students and teaching courses on atmospheric data assimilation, Dr Zou has written an easy to use, complete guide on satellite data assimilation. Organized in two sections, mathematical concepts and variational data assimilation, topics covered include linear algebra to aid in reading involved matrices, frequently used statistical methods, the interpolation role of function fitting, filtering when dealing with real observations, minimization as used in data assimilation systems, 3D-Var and the inverse problem it solves, the practical development of adjoint models and the 4D-Var method. It further reviews different systems specific coverage like GPS radio occultation (RO) and GOES Imagers. This book concludes by tying together everything covered and applying all concepts to the observation of hurricanes.
