Study Confirms Climate Models are Getting Future Warming Projections Right

There's an old saying that “the proof is in the pudding,” meaning that you can only truly gauge the quality of something once it's been put to a test. Such is the case with climate models: mathematical computer simulations of the various factors that interact to affect Earth's climate, such as our atmosphere, ocean, ice, land surface and the Sun.

2016 Earth Expeditions: ORACLES

Southern Africa produces almost a third of the world’s vegetative burning, which sends smoke particles up into the atmosphere, where they eventually mix with stratocumulus clouds over the southeastern Atlantic Ocean. The Observations of Clouds above Aerosols and their Interactions (ORACLES) study is investigating how these particles impact the stratocumulus clouds, which play a key role in both regional and global surface temperatures and precipitation, in order to help improve current climate models.
