This article presents the comparison of two algorithms for data assimilation of two dimensional shallow water flows. The first algorithm is based on a linearization of the model equations and a quadratic programming (QP) formulation of the problem. The second algorithm uses Ensemble Kalman Filtering (EnKF) applied to the non-linear two dimensional shallow water equations. The two methods are implemented on a scenario in which boundary conditions and Lagrangian measurements are available. The performance of the methods is evaluated using twin experiments with experimentally measured bathymetry data and boundary conditions from a river located in the Sacramento Delta. The sensitivity of the algorithms to the number of drifters, low or high discharge and time sampling frequency is studied.
