Predicting Climate Change: Removing the Mystery

Oct 18 & 19

Meeting the challenge of predicting climate change involves the collaboration of many different types of scientists. The effort will contribute to the success of projecting the impacts of global warming, accurately predicting El Niño phenomena, and providing improved weather forecasts. This talk will discuss fundamentals and challenges associated with building climate models, and how new satellites, instruments, and supercomputers are combining to improve climate models and their predictive capabilities.
