The Assimilation of Total Surface Current Velocity Measurements (A-TSCV) study is focused on the design, implementation and reporting of an Observing System Evaluation of satellite TSCV using synthetic TSCV measurements (e.g. from the SKIM L2 SKIMulator system).It will demonstrate the potential impact of Doppler-derived TSCV measurements using coupled-ocean-atmosphere data assimilation systems.The primary output will be a GOV-ST Observation Impact Statement Report focused on satellite TSCV, journal publications and a workshop dedicated to the findings and approach taken by the study team. In addition, it is anticipated that the study will include the development of a better understanding of suitable observation operators required by the assimilation system(s) and a more complete understanding of how to utilise TSCV in ocean modelling systems.
