A quick question about adjoint sensitivity analysis

#1 Post by leon » Wed Mar 18, 2015 9:22 pm

Hi all,

I understand that for data assimilation, the objective is to minimize the error covariance related J function. For adjoint sensitivity analysis, are we minimizing the indicator function? During that process, all the observation-related inputs are not required, right? Thank you very much.
