Steffen M Olsen, Polar Oceanography, DMI, Copenhagen DK Task 3.2.4 Perfect-model approach to potential predictability - data withholding experiment Aim: We will verify and quantify the potential predictability linked to initialization of the upper Arctic ocean in an ideal model experiment using the EC-Earth coupled climate model. Approach: Sources of forecast skill will be identified by comparing the potential predictive skill across a perfect model ensemble with data withholding experiments. Status: A new control simulation with present day CO2 levels are underway but presently postpone the production of model results. Considerations: We have shown (D32.10) potential mechanisms and modes for build up and release of upper Arctic Ocean anomalies which contribute to the understanding of potential predictability.
Steffen M Olsen, Polar Oceanography, DMI, Copenhagen DK Task 3.2.3 Data set of sea surface and ice surface temperatures (D32.28) Technical report (D32.10) describing methods and data sources ready to be submitted to the project office. Single sensor (infrared) consistent dataset 1982-2009 (1972-2014 next year) Includes uncertainties (model validation and assimilation) Superior resolution in time and space - marginal ice zone/edge To be considered Reduced subsets based on user requirements (weakly mean, night-time data)
Left: March mininimum temperature, 2007. Right: September minimum temperature, 2007. Mean September difference temperature 2mt (ERA interim) – skin (reprocessed data set)
Task 3.2.2 Improve the skill of the EU FP7 THOR adjoint assimilation system Reema Agrawal,Detlef Stammer, Armin Köhl Climate observations will be used to better constrain uncertain model parameters in the adjoint model The THOR coupled assimilation system, which is now established as the CESAM (CEN Earth System Assimilation Model) is tuned using a multivariate data assimilation technique to bring the mode closer to real world observations The Simultaneous Perturbation Stochastic Approximation (SPSA) method is used for assimilating annual mean data (pseudo and ERA-interim reanalysis data). The advantage of using SPSA method is its ease of implementation, robustness to noise in cost function and cost effectiveness. Identical twin testing demonstrates that the method reliably finds an estimate of parameters Tuning the model to reanalysis data by adjusting parameters yields a reduction in air temperature and the net surface heat flux. Deliverable D32.27 Future: No further work planed for this Task
