Pertaining to this Roundy article about applying EOF (empirical orthogonal functions) and PCA (principal component analysis) to ENSO and MJO,
the figure below shows a set of two principle components that Roundy found. On the right is the phase rel…
Jan,
That is so well put. Yes, all of that case-by-case domain expertise captured in a ML knowledgebase could be just the trick. The guru priesthood can then finally be codified.
From a recent extensive twitter thread started by a grad student in oceanography
Is the math required all that advanced or is the issue that the constraints are not sufficiently bounded? If the math doesn't go anywhere, I can understand how stude…

An "extra" dimension helps to show what happens when the solution to Laplace's Tidal Equations along the equator develops greater modulation -- equivalent to wave breaking wrapping around a torus.
The wave can curl in the left or right hand sense…
The best advice to give someone trying to work geophysical fluid dynamics models is not to get stuck over absolute quantitative estimates but instead work on the relative behavioral patterns. As an example, consider the path of understanding that co…
Jan, Nothing extra because I usually compare the data against the model so the same weighting on both time-series would not add discriminating power
Example: The Fourier amplitude spectrum comparison below may not reveal anything different if the …
Jan said:
" there's a phenomenon where two basis vectors are needed to see the actual behavior and they act as a couplet."
In wave dynamics, triads also appear prevalent as a collective behavior. This is explainable as a triad is required to …
Mostly unfiltered SOI ENSO time-series model. The high frequency cycling is likely not noise but high wavenumber standing-waves or traveling-waves that are solutions to LTE.
The high-frequencies are filtered out with the averaged response of the …
In this article, Harry Crane argues that scientists may be gaming the research publication business to increase the likelihood of manuscript acceptance (I came across it from a recent Twitter thread of a couple days ago)

But look, tweeps, the reality is we live in a world of finite resources. We have to carefully decide how to invest those resources so that we can continue making new discoveries and learning about the un…
Look at this buoyancy experiment. Forcing an inverted immiscible oil layer to suspend by applying a vibration to an injected air layer underneath this layer. This vibration prevents a Rayleigh–Taylor instability (i.e. glob dripping) from collapsing …
"As a final test, we wanted to check if the proton density catalogue is completely uncorrelated. We know, as stated above, that the seismic catalogue of strong earthquakes is non-Poissonian and internally correlated, so we have analyzed the proto…

I've followed Gell-Mann's work on complexity over the years and will now try my hand at using his approach to describe the simplicity of the models developed in this long thread.

I try to deal with uncertainties by routinely going to the higher resolution time series such as the 5-day MJO and daily SOI data sets. So the fits become multi-scale and the uncertainties can potentially be narrowed down.

Following from the previous comment, this is the phase-space (Lissajous) pattern of ENSO model amplitude vs. dAmplitude/dt. This only features the primary dipole LTE modulation of ~2.57, so it pushes the modulation "loop eyes" toward the

The first thing that caught my eye is that the chart has a negative y-axis, in spite of the fact that the units are in terms of deaths per population size -- which can never go negative. They did this to space the low death rates from the zero valu…
