Event description

In this talk, Vicky Pope describes what goes into a cutting-edge climate model, how it is used to provide information on how and why the climate is changing and how it might change in the future.

She will explore the complete cost of solutions to the problems we face. Climate change is a challenge for society – scientists, engineers and policymakers can help if they work together.
