Modeling Earth's climate future

Dec. 19, 2022

“Climate models allow us to ask “what if” questions about our planet, such as ‘what if we continue to let greenhouse gases increase unabated,’ or ‘what if we reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere?’ What does that mean for the oceans, atmosphere, land and ice?’” said Princeton climate scientist Gabe Vecchi.

Over many decades, using vast amounts of data and supercomputers, researchers at Princeton University have played a leading role in the development of advanced computational models that simulate interactions among these elements to inform an understanding of future climate scenarios and what the future might look and feel like in decades to come.
