Global Warming Could Be Nonlinear
23 Nov 2015   Contributor(s):: Jonah BlochJohnson
It is widely acknowledged that many components of the Earth's climate system exhibit nonlinear behavior when forced, with examples ranging from ice sheets to ocean circulations to savanna. These changes, as profound as they are, are not expected to greatly impact global climate, as...

Introduction to the Mathematics of Climate
07 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Richard McGehee
This course will investigate the following questions from a mathematical perspective. What determines the Earth's surface temperature? Why does the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere affect the climate? How do changes in the Earth's orbital parameters change the climate? Why has the Earth...
