Model Calibration Using Warping Metrics: With Application to Sea Ice Deformation in MPM-ice

Speaker: 
Christian Sampson

University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill

Seminar Date: 
25. February 2019 - 11:30 - 12:00

Sea Ice is a critical component of earth’s climate system and mediates a broad range of physical processes in the Arctic, such as ocean-atmosphere interaction. Increased warming in the Arctic has drastically changed sea ice dynamics in the region and the ice composition, thinner and more first year ice, and an increased marginal ice zone. Accurate representation of lead formation is now more important than ever for the calculation of important climatological variables, such as oceanic heat flux.

Applications of operational oceanography product to fisheries management and operation

Speaker: 
Dr. Hiromichi Igarashi

Affiliation: 
JAMSTEC, Yokohama, Japan

Seminar Date: 
3. December 2018 - 12:30 - 13:10

Operational oceanography products, reanalysis, NRT analysis and forecast ocean state, can provide us a variety of value-added information useful for fishery stock management, monitoring and efficient fishery operation. In this talk, applications of the operational products to the operational fisheries in the North Pacific conducted by JAMSTEC data synthesis research group will be presented.

A Nested-Grid Snow Modeling System

Speaker: 
Dr. Glen E. Liston

Affiliation: 
Colorado State University

Seminar Date: 
14. November 2018 - 11:00 - 12:45

Over the last 35 years, Dr. Liston has developed a snow-evolution modeling system (MicroMet, SnowModel, and SnowAssim) that can be used for a wide range of snow and other cold-season, cold-region applications. The model formulation is general enough to allow simulations over temporal domains spanning days to decades, and spatial domains spanning from local measurement sites to pan-Arctic regions at spatial resolutions ranging from 1-m to 10-km.
