Climate Prediction, Modelling and Scenarios
Computer models of the physical climate system are essential tools for investigating future climate change. This course will introduce students to the basic formulation of these models, and their strengths and limitations. Inter-linkages between climate modelling and mitigation and adaptation policy agendas is reviewed and critiqued. The types of climate modeling experiments performed with such models and scenarios will be reviewed. The latest projections of future climate on a variety of temporal and spatial scales will be presented and evaluated.
