# U_cvt_ens

The page document the user-supplied call-back routine `U_cvt_ens`

.

The routine `U_cvt`

is a call-back routine that has to be provided by the user. In the simplified interface the predefined name of the routine is `cvt_ens_pdaf`

, but in the full interface, the user can choose the name of the routine.

The routine is used with the 3D Ensemble Var and hybrid 3D-Var methods.

The routine is called during the iterative optimization. It has to perform the control vector transform (preconditioning) which is usually a multiplication with the square-root of the background covariance matrix **B**. The routine is provided with a control vector and has to return a state vector. The routine allows a user to implement the control vector transform in oeprational form and it gives the user access to the state ensemble.

The interface is the following:

SUBROUTINE U_cvt_ens(iter, dim_p, dim_ens, dim_cv_ens_p, ens_p, cv_p, Vcv_p) INTEGER, INTENT(in) :: iter ! Iteration of optimization INTEGER, INTENT(in) :: dim_p ! PE-local observation dimension INTEGER, INTENT(in) :: dim_ens ! Ensemble size INTEGER, INTENT(in) :: dim_cv_ens_p ! Dimension of control vector REAL, INTENT(in) :: ens_p(dim_p, dim_ens) ! PE-local ensemble REAL, INTENT(in) :: cv_p(dim_cv_ens_p) ! PE-local control vector REAL, INTENT(inout) :: Vcv_p(dim_p) ! PE-local state increment

Hints

- If the state vector is decomposed in case of parallelization one needs to take care that the application of the trasformation is complete. This usually requries a comminucation with MPI_Allreduce to obtain a global sun.
