Seminar Abstract

This presentation describes the early development of climate models that have been very useful for studying global warming. It evaluates the performance of these models in predicting the large-scale distribution of the climate change over the last several decades. In the second half of the presentation, we propose a strategy for the validation and improvement of increasingly detailed Earth System Models that have become indispensable for the projection of global change.
