Studies in regional climate sensitivity, predictability, and temporal response. Progress report, September 1992--February 1993

Description: The main theme of this research project is to explore the behavior of a class of climate models by use of classical statistical estimation techniques and to examine the broader applicability of the techniques themselves. In particular, the authors study a class of energy balance climate models including a crude representation of the deep ocean and with stochastic forcing at the surface. These models include an explicit representation of the land-sea geography so that regional products are generated (although crude at best). The authors view the exercise as preliminary to the same techniques being applied to coupled ocean/atmosphere general circulation models and the solutions they generate can be thought of as benchmarks against which the more detailed simulations can be compared.

Regional forecasting with global atmospheric models; Fourth year report

Description: The scope of the report is to present the results of the fourth year`s work on the atmospheric modeling part of the global climate studies task. The development testing of computer models and initial results are discussed. The appendices contain studies that provide supporting information and guidance to the modeling work and further details on computer model development. Complete documentation of the models, including user information, will be prepared under separate reports and manuals.

Regional forecasting with global atmospheric models; Third year report

Description: This report was prepared by the Applied Research Corporation (ARC), College Station, Texas, under subcontract to Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) as part of a global climate studies task. The task supports site characterization work required for the selection of a potential high-level nuclear waste repository and is part of the Performance Assessment Scientific Support (PASS) Program at PNL. The work is under the overall direction of the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM), US Department of Energy Headquarters, Washington, DC. The scope of the report is to present the results of the third year`s work on the atmospheric modeling part of the global climate studies task. The development testing of computer models and initial results are discussed. The appendices contain several studies that provide supporting information and guidance to the modeling work and further details on computer model development. Complete documentation of the models, including user information, will be prepared under separate reports and manuals.
