GFDL Science Symposium – May 20, 2013

Frontiers in Climate and Earth System Modeling: Advancing the Science

The GFDL Science Symposium “Frontiers in Climate and Earth System Modeling: Advancing the Science” features talks by GFDL scientists focused on important recent scientific findings from our latest climate research and modeling activities. Speakers at the Symposium will also discuss the development of next-generation models for advancing scientific understanding of the Earth System and for improved climate predictions and projections. The agenda and relevant links with additional information are listed below.
