A Workshop on Representation of sub-grid processes using stochastic-dynamic
models will be held from 6 to 8 June 2005.
The proposed workshop will explore new ideas on the representation of
sub-grid processes in weather and climate models, using computationally-cheap
stochastic-dynamic systems. These include the use of additive or multiplicative
noise in the tendency equations, stochastic parameters in conventional
parametrisation schemes, and stochastic cellular automata schemes. The
impact of such schemes on ensemble forecast skill will be discussed, and
compared with multi-model ensemble forecast systems. The impact stochastic
sub-grid schemes can have on model systematic error will also be a focus
of the workshop.
The workshop is by invitation only.
