DSC Seminar #2: Dr Jonny Williams and the NZ earth system model
In the second of the Deep South Challenge seminar series, Jonny will introduce us to climate and earth system modelling, show how the NZESM fits within the Deep South Challenge and discuss how the NZESM contributes to understanding our climate future.
“The development of the NZESM is a game changer for New Zealand science. Although there’s a long history of weather prediction and climate modelling here, it’s only with the realisation of the Deep South Challenge that true earth system modelling research can take place for the first time.” —Dr Jonny Williams on the NZ earth system model
Jonny is part of the Challenge-funded core research project, Establishing a New Zealand Earth System Modelling Capability, and is lead author of a recent paper about the NZESM published in Weather and Climate, the journal of the NZ Meteorological Society.
Come along to find out more about the NZESM and how it might be useful for your own work. There’ll be plenty of time for questions. If you missed our first seminar with Pat Langhorne, you can catch up on our YouTube channel here.
