  • 16:00-17:00 Jonathan Rougier (Bristol) Model-based Palaeo-climate Reconstruction, and Climate Prediction
    Abstract: Data from palaeoclimates allows us to validate our climate models on 'fresh' observations, and to reduce our uncertainty about future climate predictions. Here we show the first step in this process, model-based palaeoclimate reconstruction, and indicate how the next steps will proceed.
  • 17:00-18:00 Reception in Mathematics Common Room
