Random field models and priors on wind

Cornford, Dan (1998). Random field models and priors on wind. Technical Report. Aston University, Birmingha.

Abstract

This report seeks to make concrete some of the ideas we have been discussing about sensible priors for winds over the ocean. In particular, random field models are reviewed, as are permissible covariance functions. The criteria which these covariance functions must satisfy in order that vorticity and divergence exist and are continuous are defined. The use of Helmholtz theorem is discussed, and possible choices for the covariances are suggested.
