Stochastic Model: Explaining Scales and Statistics of Tropical Precipitation Clusters

Simulating precipitation is difficult due to the complexity and range of responsible atmospheric processes and technological limitations. In a new Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences paper, author Fiaz Ahmed, and MAPP-funded PI David Neelin used a two-dimensional stochastic model to reproduce observed precipitation cluster distributions, including the slope and cutoff of precipitation events.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
