Interglacials provide insights into the impacts of warmer than present conditions in certain regions of Earth.
High-Resolution Climate Modeling in the Northern Great Plains; Boulder, Colorado, 24–25 September 2015
A new study uses identical tests to evaluate the accuracy and performance of current models of Earth's magnetic field, then extrapolates the results to anticipated "petascale" supercomputers.
A computer simulation shows a net increase in primary production by phytoplankton if climate change were mitigated by 2200 but also indicates big changes in the makeup of those species.
A new model shows that a spiral wave may explain why many phenomena in the gas giant's magnetosphere undergo periodic cycles.
The MADE Challenge for Groundwater Transport in Highly Heterogeneous Aquifers: Insights from 30 Years of Modeling and Characterization at the Field Scale and Promising Future Directions; Valencia, Spain, 5–8 October 2015
Researchers identified 11 different interglacial periods over the past 800,000 years, but the interglacial period we are experiencing now may last an exceptionally long time.
Real-world data drive a simulation that successfully predicts Sun structures and interplanetary solar wind dynamics.
Scientists use high-resolution models to study how the jagged terrain of the Earth's mountains influences precipitation.
National Center for Atmospheric Research Fifth Annual Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Workshop and Early Career Summer School; Boulder, Colorado, 20–24 July 2015
