Physics Colloquium 21st October 2016 delivered by Professor Theodore (Ted) Shepherd

Pretty much all that is known with any confidence about climate change concerns its energetic and thermodynamic aspects. Atmospheric circulation, which also involves consideration of dynamics, is much more uncertain yet plays a critical role in climate change at the regional scale. How to approach this issue represents a major scientific challenge. In this talk Prof Shepherd will explain the nature of the problem and discuss some of the potential ways forward.
