Because climate models are based on fundamental scientific processes, they are able not only to simulate the climate of the modern Earth, but can also be easily adapted to simulate any planet, real or imagined, so long as the underlying continental positions and heights, and ocean depths are known," said Professor Dan Lunt, from the School of Geographical Sciences and Cabot Institute at the University of Bristol.

Dr Etheridge said that a comprehensive database of measurements was combined with information on aerosol, solar, volcanic and land-use impacts on climate to accurately simulate observed climate over past centuries in climate models.
Tuned orchestras, like climate models, propagate information through a system.
The Climate Change Modeling Unit seeks to conduct research on climate change and its impact on the overall development sectors, using modern global and regional climate models on long-term periods that might extend to several decades, in addition to drafting reports on specific short and long-term climate change projections on comprehensive development sectors.
The letter states that the Global Climate Models suggest normal monsoon in Pakistan.
Among the topics discussed are the course of the ice age; the role of ice and water; till and moraines deposited by glaciers; meltwater; map data; the extent of the glaciers; the periglacial areas; the warm stages; the course of deglaciation; dunes, sand, and stones; river processes and landforms; the North and Baltic Seas during the ice age; climate models and reconstructions of the period; and human interference.
Issues, Spring 2015) provides an interesting, entertaining, yet sobering critique of the use of climate models for policymaking.
2) Now I would like to respond to Ackerman and further emphasize why we should not depend on the predictions of climate models used in the 2013 Report, which I will refer to as IPCC2013.
To the best of my knowledge, none of the climate models designed to predict future climate have been successful in explaining these past fluctuations of the climate.
TEHRAN (FNA)- The conversion of forests into cropland worldwide has triggered an atmospheric change to emissions of biogenic volatile organic compounds that -- while seldom considered in climate models -- has had a net cooling effect on global temperatures, according to a new study.
The next steps are to see if these changes are consistent with observed trends in summer rainfall extremes and changes projected by climate models in other parts of the world.
