  3. Deriving the SWM Lecture 1: Conservation of Potential Vorticity

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the conservation equation for potential vorticity in the shallow water model.

  4. Deriving the SWM Lecture 2: Stream Functions for Velocity Fields

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the formulation of the stream function for the velocity field of the shallow water equation.  his is the second in a series of short lectures on deriving the shallow water model, given by Chris Jones in 2013. 

  5. Deriving the SWM Lecture 3: Barotropic Vorticity Equations

    04 May 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    This lecture develops the barotropic vorticity equations for the shallow water model.  This is background lecture 2.1C in the Mathematics of Climate Modelling course.

  6. Global Warming Could Be Nonlinear

    23 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Jonah Bloch-Johnson

    It is widely acknowledged that many components of the Earth's climate system exhibit nonlinear behavior when forced, with examples ranging from ice sheets to ocean circulations to savanna. These changes, as profound as they are, are not expected to greatly impact global climate, as...

  7. Modelling the Marginal Ice Zone

    23 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Luke Bennetts

    The marginal ice zone (MIZ) is the 10s to 100s of kilometres of partially ice-covered ocean, which sits between the open ocean and the quasi-continuous ice cover. It’s a highly dynamic region, where open ocean wave processes impact the ice cover, and it’s becoming larger and more...

  8. Where's the Math in Climate Science?

    09 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Christopher KRT Jones

    Abstract: Climate science is dominated by the use of large-scale models, of which there are only 30 or so around the world. It might then seem that the need for mathematics is limited to areas that directly support the operation of such models. I will explain, by digging into the way the models...

    12 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Colin James Grudzien

    Charles Jackson, University of Texas, AustinDual-state Behavior of the Community Climate System ModelIce age climate between 80,000 and 11,000 years ago experienced abrupt (< 10 year) global-scale climate transitions every few thousand years. Evidence and theory suggests such behavior may be...
