One implication is that the peer-review process for research papers published on physical climate modeling, as well as on economic modeling of climate change, is clearly broken.
Parameters are necessary in complex climate modeling, but they have the risk of producing a false model that happens to fit existing observations but incorrectly predicts future conditions.
In climate modeling, nearly everybody cheats a little.
The equipment will be used to enhance climate modeling activities, analyzing data from the laboratory s Global Atmosphere Watch facility on mount Chacaltaya, the world s highest GAW station at 5,240 metres above sea level.
Targeting graduate science and engineering students, and stipulating at the outset that the definition of climate is nebulous and evolving, DrakeAEs primary focus is to describe the principles and practice of climate modeling.
Using sophisticated climate modeling, Unger calculated that a 30-percent decline in BVOC emissions between 1850 and 2000, largely through the conversion of forests to cropland, produced a net global cooling of about 0.

It's a case of can't live with them, can't live without them: Agriculture and other industries rely on energy produced by coal and other fossil fuels, yet climate modeling is predicting tremendous disruptions for other industries from the consequences of climate change.
Thorsten Wagener, an associate professor at The Pennsylvania State University who specializes in hydrology, says there is not a major research university in the United States that doesn't have someone working on downscaled regional climate modeling (RCM) because the impact of climate change for planners and managers is a crucial question at the moment.
Speaking on his part about global climate modeling and prediction at the CECCR, Kang said that the center has been successfully involved in various research programs and high-resolution global climate modeling activities.
Climate modeling is, thus, one of the most compute-intensive areas of research, and one where new and emerging high-performance computing technologies will be decisive in answering important climate questions, such as:
