     3The page document the user-supplied call-back routine `U_add_obs_err`.
     5The routine `U_add_obs_err` is a call-back routine that has to be provided by the user. In the simplified interface the predefined name of the routine is `add_obs_error_pdaf`, but in the full interface, the user can choose the name of the routine.
     6The routine is used by the EnKF and called during the filter analysis step. The purpose of the routine is to add the observation error covariance matrix to the input/output matrix `C`. This matrix is the projection of the ensemble covariance matrix onto the observation space that is computed during the analysis step of the EnKF.
     8The interface is the following:
     10SUBROUTINE add_obs_err(step, dim_obs, C)
     13 * `step` : `integer, intent(in)`[[BR]] Current time step
     14 * `dim_obs` : `integer, intent(in)`[[BR]] Size of observation vector
     15 * `C` : `real, intent(inout), dimension(dim_obs,dim_obs)`[[BR]] Matrix to which the observation error covariance matrix is added
     17The routine is called during the analysis step.
     19The operation is for the global observation space. Thus, it is independent of whether the filter is executed with or without parallelization.
     22 * The routine does not require that the observation error covariance matrix is added as a full matrix. If the matrix is diagonal, only the diagonal elements have to be added.
