=== Uniting data, ML, and climate science ===
*'''Data for climate models''': Assimilation of diverse sources can improve climate models, and machine learning can transform raw sensor output into more relevant derived data. Well-curated benchmark datasets have the potential to advance several geoscience problems.
* Data for climate models
*'''Accelerating climate models''': Physical constraints are key ingredients for cloud, aerosol, ice sheet, and sea level models. Traditional solutions to these physics-based models are computationally expensive, but machine learning components can help alleviate the most problematic bottlenecks.
* Accelerating climate models
*'''Working with climate models''': It is possible to streamline existing climate models, pruning them down to key relationships simplifying computation with ensembles.
* Working with climate models
=== Forecasting extreme events ===
* Storm tracking: While climate models can forecast long-term changes in the climate system, separate systems are required to detect specific extreme weather phenomena, like cyclones, atmospheric rivers, and tornadoes.
* Storm tracking
* Local forecasts: Machine learning can be used to refine what are otherwise coarse-grained forecasts. These high-resolution forecasts can guide improvements in system robustness and resilience.
* Local forecasts
