Research topics

Main topic

We have introduced a methodology for using structured information, contained in images, for improving environmental forecasting. It is based on two steps:

  1. Images are assimilated into an Image Model construct to estimate relevant image information.
  2. Assimilation of the estimated information -- considered as pseudo-observations -- into an environmental simulation model.

The method has been applied in the context of ocean circulation: Sea Surface Temperature images are used to estimate the surface velocity, in turn assimilated in an operational Black Sea circulation model.
