New weather model: Record temperatures from 2009

he effects of global warming are expected to accelerate as early as 2009. These are the findings of British researchers who have developed a 10-year computer model that takes into account previously ignored natural variables.

Between 2009 and 2014, records of heat should follow one another, eclipsing 1998 considered by meteorologists as the hottest year, reads Science magazine of 10 August. This is what emerges from a new climate model developed by British scientists at the Hadley Center in Exeter.

Unsatisfied with existing computer simulations, English researchers integrated data on natural variations of the oceans and oceans, Atmosphere to their program called DePreSys (Decadal Climate Prediction System). “Until now, meteorologists are concerned about the consequences of greenhouse effects on the climate, ignoring what happens in a natural way,” said Doug Smith, a British national weather researcher.

They tested the validity of their model by testing it over the years 1982-2001 and found that their results were much closer to the temperatures actually observed during this period than those of the previous models … Researcher of the British National Weather.
