This page documents the routine PDAFomi_obs_op_adj_gridpoint of PDAF-OMI.

The routine provides an adjoint observation operator for observations that are grid point values in the state vector. It is usually called in obs_op_adj_OBSTYPE in an OMI observation module if a 3D-Var method is used.

See the page describing PDAF-OMI observation operators for a general overview.

The interface is:

  SUBROUTINE PDAFomi_obs_op_adj_gridpoint(thisobs, obs_f_all, state_p)

    TYPE(obs_f), INTENT(inout) :: thisobs      ! Data type with full observation
    REAL, INTENT(in)           :: obs_f_all(:) ! Full observed state for all observation types (array provided by PDAF)
    REAL, INTENT(inout)        :: state_p(:)   ! Process-local model state provided by PDAF


  • The necessary index information for the observation operator was initialized in init_obs_OBSTYPE of the observation module.
