During the last decade, several suboptimal filtering schemes for data assimilation have been proposed. One of these algorithms, which has succesfully been used in several applications, is the Reduced Rank Square Root filter. In this paper, a numerically more efficient variation, the Reduced Rank Transform Square Root filter, is introduced. A theoretical comparison of both filters is given and their performance is analyzed by comparing assimilation results on a magnetohydrodynamic example which emulates a space storm interacting with the Earth's magnetosphere.
