Short summary
In the present work, we performed a comparison of two broadly used data assimilation algorithms, 4D-Var and EnKF, applied to a state-of-the-art atmospheric chemistry transport model. The comparison is carried out using carefully calibrated error statistics. The paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each method applied to real-life conditions of a numerical atmospheric chemistry data assimilation.
