Correlated Observation Errors in Data Assimilation
30 Apr 2015  Presentations
Remote sensing observations often have correlated errors, but the correlations are typically ignored in data assimilation for numerical weather prediction. The assumption of zero correlations is often used with data thinning methods, resulting in a loss of information, and reduction in analysis...

Data assimilation for extreme ionospheric events: observing system experiments of the September 26, 2011 geomagnetic storm
14 Apr 2016  Presentations
As increasingly sophisticated ground and spacebased technological systems that depend on the nearEarth space environment are being built, vulnerabilities to variations in the ionosphere are also increasing. These vulnerabilities are especially prominent during extreme spaceweather events,...

Emulators in climate science. Uncertainty, sensitivity, calibration and more
30 Apr 2015  Presentations
An emulator or a surrogate is a statistical approximation of a complex numerical model. Emulators are fast to run and include a measure of their own uncertainty. This makes them suitable for a number of applications in climate science. Emulators were originally devised for uncertainty...

Extending the square root method to account for model noise in the ensemble Kalman filter
25 Feb 2015  Presentations
Presented by Patrick Raanes on 2182015 Abstract:A novel approach to account for model noise in the forecast step of the Ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is proposed. The core method is based on the approach of the analysis step of ensemble square root filters (ETKF), and...

Hybrid EnKF and Particle Filter: Lagrangian DA and Parameter Estimation
06 Nov 2015  Presentations
Dealing with high dimensional systems is one of the central problems of data assimilation. A strategy is proposed here for systems that enjoys a skewproduct structure. Christopher Jones, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, presents joint work with Naratip...

IMA Hot Topics Workshop: Predictability in Earth System Processes
09 May 2015  Workshops
A major question facing climate modeling is how best to incorporate data into models. As climate models increase in complexity, their results become correspondingly intricate. Such models represent climate processes spanning multiple spatial and temporal scales and must relate disparate physical...

Introduction to the Mathematics of Climate
07 May 2015  Series  Contributor(s): Colin James Grudzien
This course will investigate the following questions from a mathematical perspective. What determines the Earth's surface temperature? Why does the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affect the climate? How do changes in the Earth's orbital parameters change the climate? Why has the Earth...
