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. The diagnostics in the tutorial use Matlab® (to see how to configure your environment to use Matlab and the DART diagnostics, see the documentation for Configuring Matlab® for netCDF & DART).
