Climate science

To understand how to model the climate it is important to understand how the climate works. The better we know how the climate works, the better we can model it.

On these Climate Science pages, you can read about the basics of climate science, how we model the climate so we can make meaningful predictions and how we use large ensembles of climate models to produce our results.

We have also put together a glossary of commonly-used climate science terms which are used on this website, a Climate Science FAQ and a list of resources if you would like to find out more about climate change and climate modelling.
