Despite the current coronavirus health crisis, climate change remains the greatest threat facing humanity. We can only stop devastating climate change if we have a clear understanding of what the future holds – and understand the accuracy of our predictions. To do this, we need to further develop and test, mathematical models of climate change.

The Institute for Mathematical Innovation, CliMathNet and the Centre for the Mathematics of Planet Earth are hosting a Zoom webinar 12 May 2020, 9:30 – 17:00 BST where leading international experts will explore recent scientific advances in climate modelling.

In this free webinar, leading international experts will describe the latest developments in mathematically based climate modelling and examine what lies ahead in terms of challenges and opportunities.
