Deep learning for creating surrogate models of precipitation in Earth system models

Theodore Weber; Austin Corotan; Brian Hutchinson; Ben Kravitz; Robert Link DOI: https://doi.org/10.5194/acp-20-2303-2020 Abstract: We investigate techniques for using deep neural networks to produce surrogate models for short-term climate forecasts. A convolutional neural network is trained on 97 years of monthly precipitation output from the 1pctCO2 run (the CO2 concentration increases by 1 %…
