We have investigated the effects of noise on an extended chaotic system. The chosen model is the Lorenz’96, a type of “toy” model used for climate studies. Through the analysis of the system’s time evolution and its time and space correlations, we have obtained numerical evidence for two distinct stochastic resonance-like behaviors. Such behaviors are seen when both the usual and a generalized signal-to-noise ratio functions are depicted as a function of the external noise intensity, or of the system size. The underlying mechanisms seem to be associated with a noise-induced chaos reduction. The possible relevance of these and other
findings for an optimal climate prediction are discussed.
