Short summary
We have analytically calculated the expected value and the variance of the cost function that is minimized in the complete data fusion and propose a procedure that uses these quantities to constrain the values of the inconsistency covariance matrices. These matrices have to be added to the error covariance matrices of the measurements in order to fuse measurements that are inconsistent because of different vertical grids, not perfect time and space coincidence and different forward model errors.
We have analytically calculated the expected value and the variance of the cost function that is...
