Abstract : Data assimilation, the process of incorporating observations of a dynamic system into a model of the system, is a promising tool for integrating data collection and modeling efforts. This report is an annotated bibliography on the subject of coastal and ocean data assimilation. Items included in the bibliography are selected to represent the present state of the art relative to selected applications under the Wave Information Studies (WIS) authorized by Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Although most of the bibliographic items were published in the 1990's, several historical items of particular importance are also included.
