At the SIAM Annual Meeting held in Minneapolis in July, Dr. Emily Shuckburgh of the British Antarctic Survey explained dynamical systems methods that bring a new degree of understanding of mixing in the ocean, a process that has real consequences for our ability to model and predict future climate.
New scientific analysis strengthens the view that record-breaking summer heat, crop-withering drought and other extreme weather events in recent years do, indeed, result from human activity and global warming, Nobel Laureate Mario J. Molina, Ph.D., said here today.
Humans get most of the blame for climate change with little attention paid to the contribution of other natural forces. Now, scientists are shedding light on one potential cause of the cooling trend of the past 45 million years that has everything to do with the chemistry of the world's oceans.
This dramatic exhibition within the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences endeavors to open the doors to the living laboratory that is our climate, while not shying away from the hard science behind the changes people are witnessing every day.
The Science Museum in London is a free museum packed with interactive exhibits, awe-inspiring objects and an IMAX 3D Cinema. The atmosphere gallery explores the climate science : the science of how it works, what it’s doing now and what it might do next.
