The impacts of stochastic noise on climate models

Williams, P (University of Reading)
Friday 27 August 2010, 15:30-16:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


Our understanding of the climate system has been revolutionized by the development of sophisticated computer models. Yet, these models are not perfect representations of reality, because they remove from explicit consideration many physical processes which are known to be key aspects of the climate system, but which are too small or fast to be modelled. Examples of such processes include gravity waves. This talk will give several examples of implementations and impacts of stochastic sub-grid representations in atmosphere and ocean models.
