PDAF_put_state_enkf

This page documents the routine PDAF_put_state_enkf of PDAF.

The routine is typically called in assimilate_pdaf or directly in the model code.

The routines PDAF_put_state_* are used with the 'flexible' implementation variant of PDAF. The general aspects of the filter specific routines PDAF_put_state_* are described on the page Modification of the model code for the ensemble integration and its sub-page on inserting the analysis step. For the 'fully parallel' implementation variant the alternative routines PDAF_assimilate_* are used.

The interface when using the EnKF is the following:

  SUBROUTINE PDAF_put_state_enkf(U_collect_state, U_init_dim_obs, U_obs_op, &
                                 U_init_obs, U_prepoststep, U_add_obs_err, U_init_obscovar, status_pdaf)

with the following arguments:

  • U_collect_state: The name of the user-supplied routine that initializes a state vector from the array holding the ensemble of model states from the model fields. This is basically the inverse operation to U_distribute_state used in PDAF_get_state.
  • U_init_dim_obs: The name of the user-supplied routine that provides the size of observation vector
  • U_obs_op: The name of the user-supplied routine that acts as the observation operator on some state vector
  • U_init_obs: The name of the user-supplied routine that initializes the vector of observations
  • U_prepoststep: The name of the pre/poststep routine as in PDAF_get_state
  • U_add_obs_err: The name of the user-supplied routine that adds the observation error covariance matrix to the ensemble covariance matrix projected onto the observation space.
  • U_init_obscovar: The name of the user-supplied routine that initializes the observation error covariance matrix.
  • status_pdaf: The integer status flag. It is zero, if PDAF_put_state_enkf is exited without errors.

The user-supplied call-back routines are described on the page on implementing the analysis step of the EnKF algorithm.

It is recommended that the value of status_pdaf is checked in the program after PDAF_put_state_enkf is executed. Only if its value is 0 the initialization was successful.

PDAF also has a Simplified Interface providing the routine PDAF_put_state_enkf_si. In the simplified interface, the name of the user-supplied routines have predefined names and do not appear in the call to PDAF_put_state_enkf_si. More information on the pre-defined names is provided in the page on implementing the analysis step of the EnKF algorithm.
