In the extratropics, the widely used adjoint, SV, and ensemble transform Kalman filter (ETKF) products commonly identified baroclinic zones and jet features as targets, though smaller-scale aspects differed.
More refined versions of the targeting techniques were used, including SVs with norms based on analysis errors, adjoint models that included moisture, observation sensitivity, and an upgraded ETKF. In 2006, a THORPEX component of the African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (AMMA) was aimed at improving forecasts of African rainfall and easterly waves that may lead to tropical cyclogenesis.
