Short summary
Here with a simple coupled model that simulates typical scale interactions in the climate system, we study the optimal OTWs for the coupled media so that climate signals can be most accurately recovered by CDA. Results show that an optimal OTW determined from the de-correlation timescale provides maximal observational information that best fits the characteristic variability of the coupled medium during the data blending process.
