GeoRoundup: the highlights of EGU Journals published during November!

Each month we feature specific Divisions of EGU and during the monthly GeoRoundup we put the journals that publish science from those Divisions at the top of the Highlights roundup. For November, the Divisions we are featuring are: Biogeosciences (BG) and Geodesy (G). They are served by the journals: Biogeosciences (BG), SOIL, Solid Earth (SE) and Geoscientific Model Development (GMD).


Featured highlights

Geoscientific Model Development:

Machine learning for numerical weather and climate modelling: a review – 13 November 2023

Machine learning (ML) is an increasingly popular tool in the field of weather and climate modelling. While ML has been used in this space for a long time, it is only recently that ML approaches have become competitive with more traditional methods. In this review, we have summarized the use of ML in weather and climate modelling over time; provided an overview of key ML concepts, methodologies, and terms; and suggested promising avenues for further research.

Universal differential equations for glacier ice flow modelling – 15 November 2023

We developed a new modelling framework combining numerical methods with machine learning. Using this approach, we focused on understanding how ice moves within glaciers, and we successfully learnt a prescribed law describing ice movement for 17 glaciers worldwide as a proof of concept. Our framework has the potential to discover important laws governing glacier processes, aiding our understanding of glacier physics and their contribution to water resources and sea-level rise.
