Professor Antonello Provenzale

Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (ISAC), CNR, Torino

Mini-course on climate and fluid dynamics

The mini-course is composed of four lectures,
each of 2 hr + 1 hr appendix

Tuesday, January 22, 16:00
Lecture 1: Introduction and Energy Balance Models
Climate as a complex dynamical system. Type of models: from
Energy Balance Models (EBM), to Models of Intermediate Complexity
(MIC) to Global Climate Models (GCM). Energy Balance Models:
zero-dimensional, one-dimensional. Ice-albedo feedback.Stochastic
resonance. Parameterization of meridional transport.
Appendix: The issue of planetary habitability

Wednesday, January 23, 10:00
Lecture 2: Climate in the air column
Soil-vegetation-atmosphere interactions. Summer droughts at
continental midlatitudes. The dynamics of Planet Dune.
Radiative-convective models.
Appendix: Small and large scales in vegetation-climate interaction

Wednesday, January 23, 16:00
Lecture 3: Global climate models
Wind-driven circulation and thermohaline circulation in the ocean.
Structure of the general circulation of the atmosphere. The Lorenz
1984 model for midlatitude dynamics. Global climate models and
climate scenarios: PLASIM and EC-Earth.
Appendix: Discussions on global climate models

Thursday, January 24, 10:00
Lecture 4: Regional climate dynamics
Hotspots of climate variability: Arctic, HKKH, Mediterranean. The
climate of the Himalaya-Karakoram area: Monsoons and Western
Weather Patterns. Regional models and downscaling.
Appendix: Discussions on climate downscaling and impact studies
