Simulating Climate Change Using New Technique
2013-03-05 13:13:13

Brown University Statistical physics offers an approach to studying climate change that could dramatically reduce the time and brute-force computing that current simulation techniques require. The new approach focuses on fundamental forces that drive climate rather than on “following every little swirl” of water or air. And yes, there´s an app for that. Scientists are using ever more complex models running on ever more powerful computers to simulate the earth´s...

Science has come a long way with predicting climate. Increasingly sophisticated models and instruments can zero in on a specific storm formation or make detailed weather forecasts "“ all useful to our daily lives. But to understand global climate change, scientists need more than just a one-day forecast. They need a deeper understanding of the complex and interrelated forces that shape climate.This is where modern physics can help, argues Brad Marston, professor of physics at Brown...
