How to use climate models

The new report from the Australian Academy of Sciences, The risks for Australia of a 3 ° C hotter world, has grim predictions for the nation’s future under current carbon emissions policy and action. All of these predictions are based on climate models. Among the now familiar predictions of ecological and economic damage, the report […]

New project to open years of atmospheric data, improve climate models

A Stanford researcher is leading a project to better understand gravity waves, tiny ripples that contribute to the global circulation of the atmosphere. Aditi Sheshadri The first step: estimate the amount of movement carried by gravity waves and make these new estimates available to the research community. And this is no small task. Since 2013, […]

Argonne researchers improve climate models and climate change prediction

Newswise – Argonne’s new algorithm for capturing drizzle-turbulence interactions could improve predictions of future climate conditions. From space, large bridges of closely spaced stratocumulus clouds appear as brilliant cotton balls hovering above the ocean. They cover large areas – literally thousands of miles of subtropical ocean – and linger for weeks, if not months. Because […]

Society’s positive response to past climate variability is an example for today

By Mikayla Mace Kelley, University Communications March 24, 2021 Ruins of Late Antiquity villages in the limestone massif of Syria: rural settlements in the Roman and Sassanid Near East developed during the Little Ice Age of Late Antiquity. Artur Rodziewicz As the signs of man-made climate change become increasingly alarming, research into how past societies […]

New climate models with high climate sensitivity are not plausible

A recent analysis of the latest generation of climate models – known as CMIP6 – provides a caveat on interpreting climate simulations as scientists develop more sensitive and sophisticated projections of how the Earth will react to levels. increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Researchers from Princeton University and the University of Miami […]
