We study a Hamiltonian toy model for a Lagrangian fluid parcel in the semi-geostrophic limit which exhibits slow and fast dynamics. We first reinject unresolved fast dynamics into the deterministic equation through a stochastic parametrization that respects the conservation of the energy of the deterministic system. In a second step we use stochastic singular perturbation theory to derive an effective reduced stochastic differential equation for the slow dynamics. We verify the results in numerical simulations.
