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...
IMA Hot Topics Workshop: Predictability in Earth System Processes
09 May 2015 |
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...
