Philip’s Machine Learning Experiments

Climate research is a data-rich field. We have terrabytes of in-situ observations, and many petabytes each of satellite observations, reanalyses, forecasts, and simulations. Modern Machine Learning (ML) methods promise powerful new ways to analyse and improve both forecasts and reconstructions; if we can learn to use them effectively.

This page documents my attempts to learn and use ML methods. I chose to use TensorFlow (as it’s powerful, popular, and open), and to work with data from the 20th Century Reanalysis (as it’s open, accessible, and I already have software for working with it).
