    What goes into the making of a Climate Model

    10/20/2012, 5:49:52 PM

    On this blog, many of the topics that I cover are about recent research in the science of climate change. Many of the studies are dependent on the results of climate modeling, which is a necessary tool for scientists seeking information about what the future may hold.

    Just like any computer model, climate models are far from perfect, but they are still very useful, and without them climate scientists would have a much harder time predicting what the future impacts of climate change would be.

    Have you ever wondered what goes into the making of a climate model? Well, the National Academy of Sciences has put together a nice short video in their Climate Modeling 101 series to answer that question....
