Laplacian of surface temperature

2013 surface temperatures:

2013 surface temps

Blue is 0, so it seems the Laplacian of surface temperature is near 0 over the oceans, very active in the poles!?

    I need to build a BAT-SIGNAL for John, so when there is trouble in Gotham I could ask his help.

    The Laplacian is the divergence which is essentially showing continuity of flow within a region. If the net flow is other than zero, something is obviously leaking.

    One of the strange dynamics in climatology are the so-called Sudden Stratospheric Warming events http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudden_stratospheric_warming

    In a SSW event, a heated mass of air essentially rises quickly into the stratosphere. This is a localized sink of temperature.
    As I recall they have a larger impact on polar regions.

    In 2013, a SSW event originated in the Himalayas. http://theweathercentre.blogspot.com/2013/02/himalayas-provoking-upper-stratospheric.html

    It is possible you are picking up something around that region based on the video.

    SSW have some connection to the Quasi-Biennial Oscillations (QBO) -- which are cycles in stratospheric winds -- and of course with ENSO.
    A group of scientists in Germany is very interested in the connection, which may be instigated by a resonance condition among the oscillations and also with topography, which explains the Himalaya connection. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/2011JD015757/full

    Dara, you keep digging and you may uncover something really amazing.

    I will do the other years for comparison, get back to you, and thank you for the ideas and papers you posted.

    Paul you were correct, in 2013 the first and second derivative with respect to time clearly shows the Himalayas have higher values than corresponding derivatives in 2010.

    The second derivative in time again shows standing pattern like the one's Mahler had found.

    Dara, it might be worth looking at the Laplacian divided by dT/dt. This should help highlight external forces, since it is normalizing for the effect of the heat equation. This will probably be noisy when dT/dt is very small. Maybe the bettter would be to first estimate the a linear model of the Laplacian vs dT/dt and then visualize the residual error.

    I also think the heuristics in this discussion are important for computer modeling and algorithm programming of ENSO and related climatological patterns and processes.

    The reasons for the cited variations, e.g. SSW and QBO are likely because of earth-based oceanic and atmospheric currents which are mostly generated by interdynamics between sun, heliosphere, geosphere, interplanetary medium and earth, e.g. atmospheric, oceanic and terrestrial.

    All of these functions have direct correlation to the heliosphere and 11-year solar radiative electronic and magnetic cycles, and the resultant ionization schemes of the geochemical and geophysical atmospheric heat exchanges on entire earth-based climatological and ecological systems.

    This hypothesis and data should be included in our Azimuth Project research project, programs and supporting papers.

    Hello Jonah

    I saw your earlier post, if you are new here welcome!

    All of these functions have direct correlation to the heliosphere and 11-year solar radiative electronic and magnetic cycles, and the resultant ionization schemes of the geochemical and geophysical atmospheric heat exchanges on entire earth-based climatological and ecological systems.

    This is one of the reasons why I am interested to work with our good professor here, since I suspect many of the missing inputs to our algorithms are in the outerspace and related to sun.

    I know SOHO and bunch of other satellites who collect daily data, if you could point me out to data sources, I start some computations on them.

    The reasons for the cited variations, e.g. SSW and QBO are likely because of earth-based oceanic and atmospheric currents which are mostly generated by interdynamics between sun, heliosphere, geosphere, interplanetary medium and earth, e.g. atmospheric, oceanic and terrestrial.

    I need to actually show this somehow as correlation or similarity or classification/clustering between some sets of data.

    This hypothesis and data should be included in our Azimuth Project research project, programs and supporting papers.

    ROGER!

    Dara,

    We have to specify on the research criteria and data parameters. These papers are a start for data models and computations:

    Thanx Jonah, if you could help with that I will be glad to code and provide some resources.

    BTW I get a note on linkedIN I do not use that portal, if you need to write to me directly is fine dara@lossofgen....

    Personally I don't believe that the key to understanding the Earth's climate lies in

    the heliosphere and 11-year solar radiative electronic and magnetic cycles

    So, I'm not interested in spending time researching such topics.
