Sea level rises at an accelerating pace threatening coastal communities all over the world. In this context sea level projections are key tools to help risk mitigation and adaptation. Sea level projections are often made using models of the main contributors to sea level rise (e.g. thermal expansion, glaciers, ice sheets...). To obtain the total sea level these contributions are added, therefore [...]

This paper details team SUTD’s effort when participating in the “Prediction of extremal precipitation” challenge. We propose a framework that combines the generalized Pareto distribution, a bootstrap resampling scheme and inverse distance weights to capture spatial dependence. Our method reduces the quantile loss functions by 55.1% as compared to a naive benchmark, and shows improvement across [...]

A pluri-Gaussian method is developed for facies variables in three dimensions to model vertical cyclicity, related to facies ordering, and rhythmicity. Cyclicity is generally characterized by shallowing or deepening-upward sequences and rhythmicity by a low range of variability in cycle thicknesses. Both of these aspects are commonly observed in shallow-marine carbonate successions, especially [...]
