Stochastic parameterization with VARX processes

  title={Stochastic parameterization with VARX processes},
  author={Nick Verheul and Daan T. Crommelin},
In this study we investigate a data-driven stochastic methodology to parameterize small-scale features in a prototype multiscale dynamical system, the Lorenz '96 (L96) model. We propose to model the small-scale features using a vector autoregressive process with exogenous variable (VARX), estimated from given sample data. To reduce the number of parameters of the VARX we impose a diagonal structure on its coefficient matrices. We apply the VARX to two different configurations of the 2-layer L96…

A potential criterion for optimal space-time reduction is reported: the NAR models achieve minimal relative error in the energy spectrum at the time step, where the K-mode Galerkin system’s mean Courant–Friedrichs–Lewy (CFL) number agrees with that of the full model.
Data-Driven Model Reduction for Stochastic Burgers Equations
We present a class of efficient parametric closure models for 1D stochastic Burgers equations. Casting it as statistical learning of the flow map, we derive the parametric form by representing the

The forecasting skill of the parametrizations was found to be linked to their ability to reproduce the climatology of the full model, important in a seamless prediction system, allowing the reliability of short-term forecasts to provide a quantitative constraint on the accuracy of climate predictions from the same system.
Effects of stochastic parametrizations in the Lorenz '96 system
Stochastic parametrization of the effects of unresolved variables is studied in the context of the Lorenz '96 system. These parametrizations are found to produce clear improvements in correspondence
Covariate-based stochastic parameterization of baroclinic ocean eddies
Abstract In this study we investigate a covariate-based stochastic approach to parameterize unresolved turbulent processes within a standard model of the idealised, wind-driven ocean circulation. We
Data-driven stochastic representations of unresolved features in multiscale models,
In this study, we investigate how to use sample data, generated by a fully resolved multiscale model, to construct stochastic representations of unresolved scales in reduced models. We explore three
Stochastic convection parameterization with Markov chains in an intermediate complexity GCM
Conditional Markov chain (CMC) models have proven to be promising building blocks for stochastic convection parameterizations. In this paper, it is demonstrated how two different CMC models can be
Subgrid-Scale Parameterization with Conditional Markov Chains
The parameterization algorithm is shown to give good results with a Markov chain with a few states only and to outperform several other parameterization schemes.
A nonlinear dynamical perspective on model error : A proposal for non-local stochastic-dynamic parametrization in weather and climate prediction models
Conventional parametrization schemes in weather and climate prediction models describe the effects of subgrid-scale processes by deterministic bulk formulae which depend on local resolved-scale

Numerical schemes for systems with multiple spatio-temporal scales are investigated. The multiscale schemes use asymptotic results for this type of systems which guarantee the existence of an

A stochastic model for representing the missing variability in global climate models due to unresolved features of organized tropical convection is presented here. We use a Markov chain lattice model
