Reduction Methods in Climate Dynamics -- A Brief Review

  title={Reduction Methods in Climate Dynamics -- A Brief Review},
  author={Felix Hummel and Peter Ashwin and Christian Kuehn},
. We review a range of reduction methods that have been, or may be useful for connecting models of the Earth’s climate system of differing complexity. We particularly focus on methods where rigorous reduction is possible. We aim to highlight the main mathematical ideas of each reduction method and also provide several benchmark examples from climate modelling.

Quantification and interpretation of the climate variability record

A mathematical theory of climate sensitivity or, How to deal with both anthropogenic forcing and natural variability?

Recent estimates of climate evolution over the coming century still differ by several degrees. This uncertainty motivates the work presented here. There are two basic approaches to apprehend the

The Community Earth System Model: A Framework for Collaborative Research

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a flexible and extensible community tool used to investigate a diverse set of Earth system interactions across multiple time and space scales. This global

A numerical framework to understand transitions in high-dimensional stochastic dynamical systems

A review is given on the methods to analyse deterministic and stochastic climate models and it is shown that these are not restricted to low-dimensional toy models, but that they can be applied to models formulated by stochastically partial differential equations.

Empirical orthogonal functions and related techniques in atmospheric science: A review

The basic theory of the main types of EOFs is reviewed, and a wide range of applications using various data sets are also provided.

Models for stochastic climate prediction.

The strategy for stochastic climate modeling that emerges from this analysis is illustrated on an idealized example involving truncated barotropic flow on a beta-plane with topography and a mean flow.
