Work Package 3: Hydrological data assimilation

A multi-variate hydrological data assimilation system will be developed for assimilation of in-situ and remote sensing data in the MIKE SHE hydrological modelling system. A generic data assimilation framework will be developed that uses the open modelling interface (OpenMI) standard and links to the Open Source OpenDA data assimilation toolbox.

Multi-variate data assimilation will be developed for the MIKE SHE integrated hydrological modelling system.

The project will consider assimilation of in-situ measurements of river runoff, groundwater levels, and soil moisture profiles and remote sensing measurements of soil moisture and land surface temperature. Special emphasis will be given to the description of the uncertainties in models and measurements, including handling of bias.

The hydrological data assimilation system will be tested in all three test studies.
