A simple extrapolation method was used from the given perspective; it is based on the development of a regression model that was determined by the time series of a single equation: the linear tendency equation. In addition, as stated by MISSIO & JACOB (2007), models with independent dummy variables may be used in time series to check for changes in the intercepts and/or the slope of a function, which permits the identification of structural changes.
The SPPT scheme applies stochastic perturbations in the form of multiplicative noise to the parameterized diabatic part of the tendency equations of the prognostic variables (Palmer et al.
