Climate Changed: Unearth, Model, Design

Climate Changed: Unearth, Model, Design

What can models do in a changed climate? In the 1960s, NOAA created the first general circulation models simulating Earth’s oceans and atmosphere, and noted their impact on the global climate system. Since then, models have served as a primary mode of representing, analyzing, translating, and designing the environment in a changed climate.

How are models used to understand, and in turn, design our climate-changed world? Through a series of events to be held at MIT in the winter and spring of 2018, including an ideas competition, exhibition, and symposium, we explore how climate-related models of the past, present, and future act in today's climate changed world.

The Climate Changed event series is co-sponsored by the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative and the MIT School of Architecture and Planning. Contact us about the ideas competition, the exhibition, or the symposium.
