Studying the Climate: A challenge of complexity
6 February 2020
Institute of Physics, LondonWhy do we do climate science the way we do it?
How should societal needs influence our approach?
What are the fundamental challenges and limitations we face because of the complexity of the system we study?

The IOP’s Nonlinear and Complex Physics Group, along with Imperial’s Grantham Institute for Climate Change and Environment, is holding a meeting on questions at the core of how we approach doing science about one of our most important and complex systems – the climate.

The group will be joined by Wendy Parker, Ted Shepherd, Dave Stainforth, Erica Thompson and Geoff Vallis, among others, for a day of short talks and discussion. All interested attendees are welcome, especially those with a connection to climate science. More information on the meeting can be found here.

The event will run from 10-5:30 at the IOP building, at King’s Cross and lunch will be provided.

The meeting is free to attend and open to all, however registration is required. To register or for more information, please visit the website hereRegistration closes on 30 January.
