Welcome to the home of PDAF - the Parallel Data Assimilation Framework

<div align="right">PDAF is developed, hosted and maintained at the Computing Centre of Alfred-Wegener-Institut. </div>

PDAF enables data assimilation on high-performance computers.

Data assimilation is used to combine observations of some system, like the ocean or the atmosphere, with a numerical model simulating this system. As both, the observations and the numerical model are not exact, the combined information of both sources can provide a better estimate of the true state of the system than each of the information sources alone.

Performing data assimilation with advanced algorithms and large-scale models is computationally extremely demanding.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help you get started with your project.
