From more accurate climate modelling to the prospect of truly creative computers, the brain’s use of noise has a lot to teach us.
A recent paper suggested damaging climate tipping points could be closer than first thought.
Yes, dinosaurs really did survive in snow – we simulated the Cretaceous climate to prove it.
Climate models from the 1970s and 80s stand up incredibly well when compared with actual warming trends.
More than half of the world’s best growing land could become less suited for coffee.
We simulated the desert planet to find out.
We need new experiments to model Earth’s climate if global warming is stabilised at 1.5℃. A new paper explains why.
One of the most famous stats in the climate debate is the 97% of scientists who endorse the consensus on human-induced global heating. Ahead of the Glasgow summit, that figure has climbed even higher.
Is Dune scientifically plausible? We ran a climate model to find out.
A new modelling approach improves projections of Antarctica’s future ice loss. It shows a low-emissions scenario would avoid the collapse of West Antarctica’s ice sheet and limit sea-level rise.
A 1967 study by Nobel-winner Syukuro Manabe changed climate science forever
Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann have won the Nobel prize in physics for their climate modelling research.
The amount of climate data available to us is growing exponentially, and is far too much to sort through ourselves. But machines can do this for us.
An article in the eminent US magazine Science has triggered debate over whether scientists should use climate models. Here’s what you should know about climate models ahead of today’s IPCC report.
The Southern (Antarctic) Ocean is our planet’s primary storage of heat and carbon, and it’s home to extraordinary life forms, from tiny algae and spineless creatures to penguins, seals and whales.
Absolute temperatures are expected to rise more slowly in the tropics than in higher latitudes and polar regions, but the combination of heat and rising humidity will make life more challenging.
The high temperatures and wildfires of 2019 were thought to have heralded a freak summer for the Arctic. Then 2020 brought worse.
Carbon emissions are chilling the atmosphere 90km above Antarctica, at the edge of space
The science to policy process that was developed to guide climate mitigation decisions can be applied to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, without having to be reinvented.
Climate change is expected to bring the UK both more heatwaves, and more intense rainfall.
