Bridging the Gap between Weather and Climate:
Machine Learning Approaches

: (regional impact, short-term)
Short-term (minutes to days) variations in the atmosphere.
Thought of in terms of
, cloudiness, visibility, and wind. ( < 2 weeks).
Weather & Climate
: (global impact, long-term)
climate is the slowly varying aspects of the earth (atmosphere, hydrosphere, land surface) system.
Using climate information to improve weather predictablity is important to general public, especially on energy comsuption.
Undestanding change of weather under global warming and making recommandation is also critical to policymakers.
Long-term v.s. short-term, global v.s. regional
Technical challenges in automatically detecting the weather phenomena from massive collected data.
Climate model generated data
Climate (numerical) model
Machine learning model
Weather Phenomena of Interest:
Winter Storm tracking
Responsible for most winter blizzard, associated with strong wind and low-temperature.
Data: (global gridded)
sea level pressure
2-D wind field
Machine learning methods:
Winter Storm Tracks
II. Atmospheric Blocking:
A weather phenomenon that blocks the normal west-east flow of airmass and water vapor transport.
Responsible for west coast drought, heat waves in the U.S. and Europe, and cold air outbreak.
Classify blocking phenomenon with SVM:
Gridded wind and height data, and historical records are used to train a
support vector machine (SVM) model
with large margin.
The classified pattern are further clustered and verified through the cross-validation and connected labelling.
a long and narrow water vapor band on the weather map or satellite image.
Rich in water vapor.
Producing extreme precipitation (rainfall and snowfall) and creating floods.

Weather patterns are successfully detected from large datasets through machine learning methods.
The machine learning models are able to predict impact of future climate change.
The insight is critical to policymakers and relevant industries on decision making.
