Summary Based upon the mathematical concepts and numerical algorithms developed in the previous years for the observability of sensor systems and the evaluation of optimal sensor locations in data assimilations, the objectives of this project are to further analyze the algorithm of observability using the tangent linear model (TLM) of the shallow water system; to develop computational algorithms of sensor optimization; and to numerically evaluate the optimal sensor locations for the shallow water system. In the previous year, one journal paper was published, one book chapter was accepted, and three conference papers were submitted. Some numerical tests were carried out in which the observability was computed using the TLM of a shallow water model. We also numerically tested the consistency of observability for a spectral element shallow water model. Recently we started the effort of developing algorithms of optimal sensor locations.
