Many National Academies studies have examined the evidence, causes, and impacts of climate change. At the heart of efforts to understand and respond to climate change are scientific models that allow us to piece together the Earth’s past climate patterns, understand current trends, and predict future climate variations. Explore these Academies resources for a window into the methods used to produce and apply climate models:
- Climate Modeling 101 (a website based on Academies reports)
- Climate Change: Lines of Evidence (a video produced by the National Research Council)
- Earth Lab: Climate Modeling (an online module from the Koshland Science Museum)
