Climate Change Modeling

Climate models attempt to simulate the behaviour of the climate, in an attempt to understand the key physical, chemical and biological processes which govern climate. Climate models give us a better understanding of the climate system, providing us with a clearer picture of past climates by comparison with records of instrumental and palaeoclimatic observations, and enabling us to predict future climate change. Models can be used to simulate climate on a variety of geographical scales and over different periods of time. The basic laws and other relationships necessary to model the climate are expressed as a series of mathematical equations.
