Climate change research today relies on climate information from the past. Historical climate records of temperature observations form global gridded datasets that are examined, for example, in IPCC reports. However, the datasets combining measurement records are sparse in the past. Even today, they contain missing values. We found that recently successful image inpainting technologies, such as those found on smartphones to get rid of unwanted objects or people in photos, are useful here. The derived AI networks are able to reconstruct artificially cropped versions in the grid space for any given month using the missing values observation mask. So herewith we have found with AI a technique that gives us data from the past that we never measured with instruments. Other important datasets used in the Assessment Report 6 of the IPCC to study climate change, as well as advanced applications such as downscaling in atmosphere and ocean, a hybrid (AI&ESM) data assimilation approach within ICON, precipitation in broken radar fields are shown in this presentation and digital twins of instruments are presented.
