Quantifying and reducing uncertainty in climate change, through understanding and improving the representation of key processes.
This area of research involves the design, building, evaluation and improvement of climate models informed by knowledge of the mechanisms of past, present and future climates. The scientific focus is on gaining understanding and improving the representation of key processes that are critical for climate variability and change on global and regional scales.
Determining the likelihood and severity of extreme events for the past, present and future.
Quantifying and understanding uncertainties in climate projections.
Publications by our scientists working on understanding climate change.
Information on the wide range of work undertaken by our scientists on understanding climate change; the projects they are involved with and their skills and interests.
