Scientists develop new approach to support future climate projections
Southampton UK (SPX) Nov 29, 2012
Scientists have developed a new approach for evaluating past climate sensitivity data to help improve comparison with estimates of long-term climate projections developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The sensitivity of global temperature to changes in the Earth's radiation balance (climate sensitivity) is a key factor for understanding past natural climate changes as well as potential future climate change. Many palaeoclimate studies have measured natural climate change ... read more
