At the January meeting of the American Meteorological Society in Atlanta, speakers honored Dr. Warren Washington with talks on the early days of climate change modeling, how the field evolved to the present global coupled climate models in use internationally to provide insights into the workings of the past, present and possible future states of the climate system, how those models have become not only central to US climate change assessments and the IPCC assessments, but also how climate model results have informed policy, and how emerging Earth System Models and new computer technologies will transform climate change modeling in the future. The recorded presentations of the symposium are freely available online. Dr. Washington's papers, covering his extensive career, are available for research at the NCAR Archives.
The NCAR Archives are open year round, Tuesday thru Friday, from 9:00-4:00. The archivist offers reference and information services for all users, and provides access to the collections. If you would like to visit the Archives, please contact us 24 hours in advance to schedule an appointment.
