In the paleoclimate realm, the EEES Earth system modelling group focuses primarily on problems involving long-timescale Earth system dynamics beyond the reach of high-resolution modelling. We address this challenge through the development and application of Earth system models of intermediate complexity (EMICs), notably GENIE and PLASIM, and statistical models of Earth system processes.
The group works closely with observationalists, and with other modellers within EEES, as well as nationally and internationally. The primary objectives are to use modelling to improve understanding of both the causes and the effects of climate variability of the Earth system in the past. Ultimately, the aim is to transform this improved knowledge of the past into a deeper understanding of the present and future states of the Earth system.
Particular areas in which the group is working, or has recently worked, include:
