Sample text

In some applications, substitutes of climate models are used that take the form of pulse response models. The latter assume a linearity of the response but dramatically increase the computational efficiency (Joos and Bruno 1996). Alternatively a neural-network approach formally removes the linearity assumption but does not necessarily replicate the system’s non-linear characteristics (Knutti et al. 2003). In the next sub-sections we review approaches of assessing uncertainty using models of different complexity.

Here the focus was on estimating the uncertainty of climate projections. Next, we continue to address probabilistic methods and introduce quantitative statistical measures of forecast uncertainty, with a specific focus on the interface to operational application and the end-user perspective. This will be exemplified on the seasonal time-scale. 1 The rationale A major addition to the forecasting repertoire of weather services in recent years has been the development of operational techniques for seasonal climate predictions.
