A dual data assimilation method for a layered quasi-geostrophic ocean model.

Didier Auroux, Jacques Blum (2002)


In this paper we introduce the equations of a layered quasi-geostrophic ocean model, and the corresponding data assimilation problem. We first give the variational formulation. We then point out the linear theory of duality. Finally, we apply duality to our nonlinear model by describing an algorithm to solve the data assimilation problem, introducing a dual cost function and a simple way to compute its gradient.

A nonlinear parabolic problem on a Riemannian manifold without boundary arising in climatology.

J. I. Díaz, L. Tello (1999)

Collectanea Mathematica

We present some results on the mathematical treatment of a global two-dimensional diffusive climate model. The model is based on a long time averaged energy balance and leads to a nonlinear parabolic equation for the averaged surface temperature. The spatial domain is a compact two-dimensional Riemannian manifold without boundary simulating the Earth. We prove the existence of bounded weak solutions via a fixed point argument. Although, the uniqueness of solutions may fail, in general, we give a...

A rainfall forecasting method using machine learning models and its application to the Fukuoka city case

S. Monira Sumi, M. Faisal Zaman, Hideo Hirose (2012)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In the present article, an attempt is made to derive optimal data-driven machine learning methods for forecasting an average daily and monthly rainfall of the Fukuoka city in Japan. This comparative study is conducted concentrating on three aspects: modelling inputs, modelling methods and pre-processing techniques. A comparison between linear correlation analysis and average mutual information is made to find an optimal input technique. For the modelling of the rainfall, a novel hybrid multi-model...

Application of MCMC to change point detection

Jaromír Antoch, David Legát (2008)

Applications of Mathematics

A nonstandard approach to change point estimation is presented in this paper. Three models with random coefficients and Bayesian approach are used for modelling the year average temperatures measured in Prague Klementinum. The posterior distribution of the change point and other parameters are estimated from the random samples generated by the combination of the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm and the Gibbs sampler.

Dissection multi-échelle de quelques systèmes naturels : de la cryosphère Antarctique aux pulsations solaires

Sylvie Roques, Frédérique Rémy (2006)

Annales de la faculté des sciences de Toulouse Mathématiques

L’objectif de cet article est d’illustrer la nature multi-échelle de quelques systèmes naturels en sciences de l’univers. Nous nous intéressons tout d’abord à l’onde circumpolaire Antarctique, une des manifestations les plus marquantes de la variabilité australe. Sa variabilité est analysée à partir de relevés de stations de météorologie côtières du continent Antarctique, fournissant des données de température depuis 1955. Grâce à une « décomposition modale empirique » (DME) couplée à une analyse...

Estimate of vegetation efficiency on reducing dust concentration produced by a surface coal mine

Řezníček, Hynek, Beneš, Luděk (2019)

Programs and Algorithms of Numerical Mathematics

A new vegetative barrier can help to reduce dust concentration in a surface coal mine neighbourhood. The project reports about quantification of this effect. An air flow field is computed together with the dust transport driven by it using an in-house CFD solver. The 2D cuts of a real geometry of Bílina coal mine in north Bohemia are used. The vegetation is modelled as horizontally homogeneous porous medium which slows the air flow inside. An influence on turbulence and filtering the dust particles...
