# Some Theoretical Problems on Variational Data Assimilation

• Rev Recd Date: 2007-03-05

• Theoretical aspects of variational data assimilation(VDA) for a simple model with both global and local observational data are discussed.For the VDA problems with global observational data,the initial conditions and parameters for the model are revisited and the model itself is modified.The estimates of both error and convergence rate are theoretically made and the validity of the method is proved.For VDA problem with local observation data,the conventional VDA method are out of use due to the ill-posedness of the problem.In order to overcome the difficulties caused by the illposedness,the initial conditions and parameters of the model are modified by using the improved VDA method,and the estimates of both error and convergence rate are also made.Finally,the validity of the improved VDA method is proved through theoretical analysis and illustrated with an example.And a theoretical criterion of the regularization parameters is proposed.
