This booklet counteracts the present style for theories of "chaos" and unpredictability by means of describing a concept that underpins the fabulous accuracy of present deterministic climate forecasts, and it means that additional advancements are attainable. The e-book does this by means of creating a precise hyperlink among a thrilling new department of arithmetic known as "optimal transportation" and current classical theories of the large-scale surroundings and ocean flow. it's then attainable to unravel a collection of easy equations proposed decades in the past via Hoskins that are asymptotically legitimate on huge scales, and use them to derive quantitative predictions approximately many large-scale atmospheric and oceanic phenomena. a specific function is that the easy equations used have hugely predictable suggestions, hence suggesting that the bounds of deterministic predictability of the elements would possibly not but were reached. it's also attainable to make rigorous statements in regards to the large-scale behaviour of the ambience and ocean through proving effects utilizing those easy equations and employing them to the true procedure taking into account the blunders within the approximation. there are many different titles during this box, yet they don't deal with this large-scale regime.

If e is small because Fr rather than Ro is small, the velocity gradients are not constrained and no estimate can be made in this way. It is therefore necessary to exploit the structure of the equations to prove a better estimate. 54), Large-scale atmosphere flow 30 though it has been achieved for the simpler equations discussed in the following sections. Several of the difficulties are discussed by [Mclntyre and Roulstone (2002)]. The effect is that it appears not to be possible to prove the existence of a slow manifold which is accurate to more than leading order in e and is uniformly accurate for small e.

83). Once again the equations are to be solved in a closed region T. As in the shallow water case, in order to achieve energy conservation we require both u g • n = 0 and u • n = 0 on the boundary of T. The former condition implies that

Units 100m, contour interval 80m. Bottom: Potential vorticity, units ( m s ) - 1 , contour interval 0 . 3 x l 0 - 9 . From [Cullen (2002)]. K. 57). 3. Thus no solvability conditions arise. 57) can be solved uniquely for all finite times. The solutions remain as smooth as the initial data. 57) thus define a slow manifold. These theorems are reviewed by [Chemin (2000)]. The proofs exploit the fact that the vorticity is bounded by its initial values. Provided that fluid trajectories can be shown to retain their identity, advecting the vorticity can only rearrange its values, but cannot create new ones.
