Is this sufficient to remove the wikify and cleanup tags?
- ah, well done, I wondered where the rather odd list on the page came from! I'm going to "fix" this page fairly heavily. William M. Connolley 18:30:19, 2005-07-31 (UTC).
- I've now done this, and moved the page to boot. William M. Connolley 18:59:35, 2005-07-31 (UTC).
I've made parameterization redirect here (actually I've undo that and make it redirect to parametrization). Anyway, the text was:
Parameterizations are used in General circulation models (GCM) and Numerical Weather Prediction models (NWP) to represent processes that are not directly simulated, either because the corresponding equations are not included or because the processes are too small for the model resolution. For instance, cloud formation or precipitation are calculated from quantities like water vapor, depending on the exact parameterization scheme employed.
Many of the differences between GCM experiments to predict the rate of global warming can be attributed to different parameterizations in the models. However, the most important design goal in choosing parameterizations for a GCM is not so much picking the "best" one, as finding a set of parameterizations for the model that is consistent.
Parameterization is also used in software development. It is this action of defining any of a set of factors whose values determine the characteristics or behavior of a program.
I doubt any of that is useful here William M. Connolley 17:20, 23 March 2006 (UTC)
Some potential sources
This article looks a tad neglected. I may find time to have a go at it but if anyone else wants to try, you might interested in the lecture notes from European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts course on parametrisation. Some of the lecture notes are rather old and in particular where they discuss the resolution of weather forecast models need to be supplemented by the presentations for this year's course. It would also be worth including some information on the use of parametrisation perturbation in Ensemble forecasting. See  - in particular "Using Stochastic Physics to Represent Model Error".
