Special seminar: Spatio-temporal variability in global prediction models

Atmospheric spatial and temporal variability are closely related with the former being relatively well observed compared to the latter. The former is also regularly assessed in the validation of numerical weather prediction models while the latter is more difficult to estimate. Likewise, thermodynamical fields and circulation are closely coupled calling for an approach that considers them simultaneously. 

We shall discuss spatio-temporal variability in the state-of-the-science global prediction models and derive a relationship between deficiencies in simulated spatio-temporal variability and model biases. The underlying dynamical regime decomposition enables an improved understanding of the role of tropical variability in global circulation.
