Global Climate Model - Projections of Future Climate Change - Accuracy of Models That Predict Global Warming
... AOGCMs represent the pinnacle of complexity in climate models and internalise as many processes as possible ... They may be coupled to models of other processes, such as the carbon cycle, so as to better model feedback effects ... No model – whether a wind-tunnel model for designing aircraft, or a climate model for projecting global warming – perfectly reproduces the system being modeled ...

Famous quotes containing the words models, flux and/or adjusted:

    French rhetorical models are too narrow for the English tradition. Most pernicious of French imports is the notion that there is no person behind a text. Is there anything more affected, aggressive, and relentlessly concrete than a Parisan intellectual behind his/her turgid text? The Parisian is a provincial when he pretends to speak for the universe.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    Sense is a line, the mind is a circle. Sense is like a line which is the flux of a point running out from itself, but intellect like a circle that keeps within itself.
    Ralph J. Cudworth (1617–1688)

    The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
