  1. A Stochastic Bulk Rate Parameterization Driven by a Turbulent Collision Kernel

    10 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: David Collins

    Collision and coalescence of cloud droplets to form precipitating rain droplets is a poorly understood area of cloud microphysics.  Detailed models of collision and coalescence are prohibitively expensive because the length scales of these processes and the grid sizes of climate models...

  2. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Afternoon Session

    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...

  3. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Morning Session

    12 May 2015 |

    Juan Restrepo, Oregon State UniversityData AssimilationAccounting for uncertainties has led us to alter our expectations of what is predictable and how such predictions compare to nature. A significant effort, in recent years, has been placed on creating new uncertainty quantification techniques,...

  4. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 1 Afternoon Session

    12 May 2015 |

    Graham Feingold, National Oceanic & Atmospheric AdministratonDynamical System Analogues to Cloud SystemsShallow convection exhibits fascinating cellular structures at scales of a few to several hundred kilometers. Configurations of relatively cloud free open cell states, or much cloudier...
