Correlation operators are used in data assimilation algorithms
to weight the contribution of prior and observation information.
Efficient implementation of these operators is therefore crucial for
operational implementations. Diffusion-based correlation operators are popular in ocean data assimilation, but can require a large number of serial matrix-vector products. An all-at-once formulation removes this requirement, and offers the opportunity to exploit modern computer architectures. High quality preconditioners for the all-at-once approach are well-known, but impossible to apply in practice for the
high-dimensional problems that occur in oceanography. In this talk we
consider a nested preconditioning approach which retains many of the
beneficial properties of the ideal analytic preconditioner while
remaining affordable in terms of memory and computational resource.
