SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CORRECTING A MODEL-DERIVED VERTICAL STRUCTURE OF OCEAN TEMPERATURE AND OCEAN SALINITY BASED ON VELOCITY OBSERVATIONS

System and method for correcting the vertical structure of the ocean temperature and salinity based on velocity observations. Three relations that can be precomputed are exploited: (1) the relation between temperature and salinity throughout a water column, (2) the relation between temperature/salinity and geopotential, and (3) the relation between geopotential and velocity. The relations are stored in a form that allows efficient application through a cross-correlation matrix.
