Chris Budd OBE, University of Bath: How Maths Predicts the Climate
How do you go about predicting something as complex as the Earth's climate, and how can mathematics help? In this talk I will explore what climate models look like, the uncertainties involved in climate modelling, and also why the predictions need to be taken seriously despite those uncertainties. I will look at the simplest climate model of them all- the energy balance model - and will also explain the famous butterfly effect.
