2005) provided results obtained using the NCEP’ s regional weather prediction system in weak constraint VDA framework. Akella and Navon (2007) studied in depth the nature of modeling errors and suggested a decreasing, constant and increasing in time forms of ME. Implementation of these forms in a weak constraint VDA framework yielded a further reduction in forecast errors. When the number of observations is considerably smaller, the method of representers (Bennett 2002) provides a computationally efficient (in storage/ space requirements) formulation of VDA.

1 Weak Constraint 4D-Var The model can be imposed as a constraint in the cost function, in the same way as other sources of information: Φi (x) = xi − Mi−1 (78) Model error η is defined as: ηi (x) = xi − Mi−1 . The cost function becomes: J(x) = 1 n ∑ (H(xi ) − yi )T R−1 i (H(xi ) − yi ) 2 i=1 (79) 1 1 n + (x0 − xb )T B−1 (x0 − xb ) + ∑ ηiT Q−1 i η 2 2 i=1 Another issue requiring attention is that model error covariance matrix Q has to be defined. e. η = 0 (perfect model). Studies indicate that model error (ME) can severely impact forecast errors, see for instance Boer (1984), Dalcher and Kalnay (1987), Bloom and Shubert (1990) and Zupanski (1993).
