‘It’s happening, it’s now,’ says U.S. government report on climate change

Climate change is controversial and the subject of huge debate. Complex climate models based on maths helps us understand. How do these models work?

A lecture by Chris Budd OBE, Gresham Professor of Geometry 13 November 2018


Climate change is important, controversial, and the subject of huge debate. Much of our understanding of the future climate comes from the use of complex climate models based on mathematical and physical ideas.

In this talk, Professor Budd will describe how these models work and the assumptions that go into them. He will discuss how reliable our predictions of climate change are, and show how mathematicians can give us insights into both past and future.
