AIP-FLEET live-streamed talk: The physics of climate modelling

November 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for an introduction into the field of climate modelling for interested physicists outside the field of climate dynamics. We will cover the two main approaches to modelling climate: (1) Energy balance. This approach gives a good starting point in understanding the basics of the earth climate and helps to understand how greenhouse gasses warm the earth. 2) General circulation. This is the approach of state-of-the-art climate models at the high-performance end of climate simulations. A few examples will…
