Data assimilation methods were largely developed for operational weather forecasting, but in recent years have been applied to an increasing range of earth science disciplines. This book will set out the theoretical basis of data assimilation with contributions by top international experts in the field. Various aspects of data assimilation are discussed including: theory; observations; models; numerical weather prediction; evaluation of observations and models; assessment of future satellite missions; application to components of the Earth System. References are made to recent developments in data assimilation theory (e.g. Ensemble Kalman filter), and to novel applications of the data assimilation method (e.g. ionosphere, Mars data assimilation).

From the reviews:
"Data Assimilation ... is a collection of 25 review and research articles in a 700-page volume. ... discuss a very broad range of topics, including all aspects of atmospheric data assimilation science as well as applications beyond the Earth's atmosphere. ... There are several audiences that would find Data Assimilation particularly useful. ... The volume would also be quite helpful as an introduction to geophysical applications of assimilation for students or researchers with training in the technical aspects of state estimation ... ." (Jeffrey Anderson, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, May, 2012)
