Scientific Understanding of Global Climate
Figure 2.10Texas Tech University
This figure appears in chapter 2 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
As scientific understanding of climate has evolved over the last 120 years, increasing amounts of physics, chemistry, and biology have been incorporated into calculations and, eventually, models. This figure shows when various processes and components of the climate system became regularly included in scientific understanding of global climate and, over the second half of the century as computing resources became available, formalized in global climate models.
