Workshop on Representation of sub-grid processes using stochastic- dynamic models

A Workshop on Representation of sub-grid processes using stochastic-dynamic models was held from 6 to 8 June 2005.


The workshop explored new ideas on the representation of sub-grid processes in weather and climate models, using computationally-cheap stochastic-dynamic systems. These included 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 were discussed, and compared with multi-model ensemble forecast systems. The impact stochastic sub-grid schemes can have on model systematic error was also a focus of the workshop.
