Short summary
A stochastic method, the ensemble Kalman smoother (EnKS), is proposed as a linear solver in four-dimensional variational data assimilation (4DVAR). The method approaches 4DVAR for large ensembles. Regularization provides global convergence, and it is implemented as an additional artificial observation. Since the EnKS is uncoupled from the insides of the 4DVAR, any version of EnKS can be used.
