E3SM is DOE's energy and earth system model used for long-term climate projections. In a collaboration with David Romps I am working toward a new version in which its traditional convection scheme will be replaced by a stochastic parcel model, a representation of convection based on stochastically entraining rising fluid parcels.
Juliane Muller in the Computational Research Division we are developing a computationally cheap framework to calibrate a parameterization using surrogate models. We are testing the new approach for the parameterization of turbulence and shallow clouds with the goal to provide more accurate representations of, e.g., cloud feedbacks in climate models.Parameterizations in earth system and atmopsheric models frequently include free parameters that are poorly constrained by observations or theory.
