Climate Change Mathematics


A reading by Chris Budd, University of Bath titled ‘The Mathematics of Climate Change’ that discusses the use of mathematical concepts and techniques to address climate change. The reading demonstrates the use of mathematical modelling, probability, statistics, dynamical systems theory and scientific computing to understand global warming, loss of ice, sea level rise, extreme weather events and make future predictions.

Students will understand how mathematics contributes in understanding the Earth’s climate system and climate change.

Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
