Short summary
A new method to predict chaotic systems from observation and process-based models is proposed by combining machine learning with data assimilation. Our method is robust to the sparsity of observation networks and can predict more accurately than a process-based model when it is biased. Our method effectively works when both observations and models are imperfect, which is often the case in geoscience. Therefore, our method is useful to solve a wide variety of prediction problems in this field.
