Climate Model Simulations

The course introduces knowledge about climate models and how are they used to understand the climate change due to human activity and natural variation. The students will learn the climate forcings under different climatic conditions, from past, present and future, as well as climate response to these forcings. The course includes practical exercise on spatial and temporal analysis of output from climate model simulations.
