Séminaire exceptionnel IRPHE

Modeling Climate Change in the Laboratory

Orateur : Miklos Vincze

Abstract : In a simple tabletop-size rotating wave tank experiment atmospheric climate change scenarios can be modeled by continuously decreasing the temperature difference between the two sidewalls of the tank, imitating the effect of global warming. As these boundary conditions slowly change, we can observe how the "weather" in the tank reacts to this non-stationary forcing. Such laboratory investigations may support the better understanding of the causal connections between global warming and the increasing number of unusually warm or cold seasons observed coincidentally in the past 30 years at the mid-latitudes of Earth.
