Chaos Theory and Weather Forecasting

Chaos theory and weather forecasting

Why is it so difficult to predict the weather? Come and investigate what the amazing double pendulum can tell us about weather forecasting and analysing climate models.


Understanding climate change

How can we investigate climate change? Talk to a scientist and find out how climate model simulations can help us understand more about the complexities of climate change.
