In this infographic we explore research into climate models! Climate models simulate environmental processes to help researchers predict future events. Over time they have gained complexity and can now be used for tasks such as modelling the atmosphere during past volcanic eruptions (Ming et al, 2020). The IPCC also base their findings on climate models. Find out more in this infographic!
