Koopman decomposition of the SST dynamics
Antonio Navarra, University of Bologna, will present “Koopman decomposition of the SST dynamics” at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 10, in Guyot Hall, Room 220.
In the last years, ensemble methods have been widely popular in atmospheric, climate, and ocean dynamics investigations and forecasts as convenient methods to obtain statistical information on these systems. In many cases, ensembles have been used as an approximation to the probability distribution that has acquired more and more a central role, as the importance of a single trajectory, or member, was recognized as less informative. Using results from the dynamical systems and more recent results from the machine learning and AI communities, we can arrive at a direct estimation of the probability distribution evolution and also at the formulation of predictor systems based on a nonlinear formulation. The paper introduces the theory and discuss some examples for the analysis of the global SST.
