Project: Mars Atmospheric Data Assimilation

It covers the data assimilation scheme for Mars' atmospheric circulation. It is a blend of observations from spacecraft in Mars orbit with simulations using the LMD Mars Global Climate Model. This technique is commonly practised in environmental science and statistically performs observations to produce accuracy closer to reality. The model also fills in gaps where no observations are available.Furthermore, this scheme assimilates observations from the Mars Climate Sounder instrument on board Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and focuses on assimilating temperature observations such as dust and water ice column opacities.
