In the 1960s, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) created the first general circulation models simulating Earth's oceans and atmosphere, shedding light on their combined impact on the global climate system. Since then models have served as our primary mode of framing, analyzing, understanding, representing, translating, and designing the built environment for a changed climate.
This symposium brings together experts in the sciences, humanities, and the design world to explore how models act in a climate changed. Advanced registration required. Learn more and register.
The symposium follows a competition and exhibition on the same theme that took place earlier this year.
