5:00 P.M.–6:30 P.M. (MIT, Wong Auditorium, E51-115)
Speaker: Jochem Marotzke, Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie, Hamburg
Observations suggest a hiatus in global surface temperature rise since 1998, whereas most climate models simulate continued warming. What causes this difference? Do climate models respond too sensitively to the increase in greenhouse-gas concentrations such as that of carbon dioxide, and thus overestimate climate change systematically? Or has the discrepancy arisen by chance? And what is the relevance of this discrepancy for our assessment of long-term anthropogenic climate change?
