Ambassador Ross Denny handed over climate modelling
equipment to the Atmospheric Physics Laboratory at San Andres University in La Paz.
Myles Allen, the principal investigator of the study from Oxford University said other climate modelling
groups' data did not "set out to explore the full range of uncertainty, which is why studies like ours are needed".
Yet academics and scientists from New York University (NYU) are set to soon address this issue as they set up the Centre for Prototype Climate Modelling at the NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Institute.
The Centre for Prototype Climate Modelling in Abu Dhabi will focus on a number of atmospheric and oceanographic studies aimed at bridging mathematical theory with practical application, through sophisticated technology.
It is also focussing to refine climate modelling
in order to reduce the uncertainties inherent in long-term climate prediction.
Together with other new observational datasets and high-resolution climate modelling
, this will quantify the nature and drivers of global precipitation extremes and their response to natural variability and forcing across multiple timescales.
IS-ENES2 further integrates the European climate modelling
community, stimulates common developments of software for models and their environments, fosters the execution and exploitation of high-end simulations and supports the dissemination of model results to the climate research and impact communities.
