AbstractThe data assimilation community has developed a variety of strategies for the blending of observations and models, taking into account their inherent uncertainties. It has offered persuasive arguments for its utility in some applications. For example, in weather forecasting and subsurface hydrology. I will focus on Bayesian methodologies, and describe a few new data assimilation strategies that take advantage of computational and physical conditions inherent in the intended application in order to provide useful alternative forecasts (estimates).

Biography: Juan M. Restrepo is Professor of Mathematics at Oregon State University.
