Why do we talk about global change and not just global climate change? What would be the most effective actions to limit the impacts of climate change? What kind of climate change stories would scientists like to read?
Trailblazing scientists Jule Charney and Edward Lorenz gave us numerical weather prediction and chaos theory, highlighting the value of basic research
Lauren Hinkel | Oceans at MIT February 14, 2018
Our understanding of atmospheric and climate dynamics, as well as weather prediction and its limits, would not be what it is today without advances in the fundamental science of modern meteorology that took place at MIT in the post WWII era...
How might climate change affect the acidification of the world’s oceans or air quality in China and india in the coming decades, and what climate policies could be effective in minimizing such impacts? To answer such questions, decision-makers routinely rely on science-based projections of...
