The DART Tutorial is intended to aid in the understanding of ensemble data assimilation theory and consists of step-by-step concepts and companion exercises with DART.
Before beginning the DART Tutorial, make sure you are familiar with the prerequisite statistical concepts by reading Conditional probability and Bayes’ theorem.
The diagnostics in the tutorial use Matlab®. To learn how to configure your environment to use Matlab and the DART diagnostics, see the documentation for Configuring Matlab® for netCDF & DART.
