Climate Science

Climate Science is the study of the behaviour of the climate using scientific techniques to discover provable processes and actions within the climate and hence be able to:

  • predict with a degree of accuracy future changes in the climate,
  • advise on how to interact with the climate
Climate Science, although primarily the study of the environment also depends a lot on mathematic and statistical processes to understand the climate - as we can only observe the climate using very sparse measurements.
