Climate models

Introduction to Climate Models

The video Supercomputing the Climate and the article Models 'key to climate forecasts' are a good introduction to how computer climate models are used.

How climate models work

The slideshow In Pictures: Climate Models shows how climate models have developed over the years with improvements in computing technology. It is a useful article to understand the myriad factors that must be considered by such models. National Earth Science Teachers Association and How do climate models work? also have clear explanation of the processes and variables that are included in climate models.

Finally, New Supercomputer Enhances Reliability of Weather Predictions explains how new advances in technology are helping improve climate models even further.
