How to model climate change

May 15, 2017
Dozens of inflatable globes were thrown into the audience. Intel ISEF finalists, judges, and fair directors spun their globes, spotting the Gulf Stream, Kuroshio Current, and other important spots.Mark Petersen, a researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory, explained different ways of modeling the effects of climate change during his Climate Change, Modeling, and Supercomputers symposia session at Intel ISEF 2017. He used the inflatable globes to show important areas that scientists study, and how different types of modeling work together to model the entire Earth.Climate change simulations measure high or low fossil fuel scenarios, ocean acidification, rising sea levels, and more. Scientists measure things like how fast ice sheets will melt and ocean modeling. Read more
