Simulation of Historical and Projected Climate Change 1900-2100
This animated series of temperature anomaly maps was produced by averaging results from 15 of the most advanced climate models in the world. Simulation of historical and projected climate data shows a strong warming trend in the lower atmosphere, underneath a cooling layer in the upper atmosphere.
The model results shown in this video were contributed by participants in the World Climate Research Programme's Climate Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) and were archived by the U.S. Departement of Energy's Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison (PCMDI) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The data was analyzed using the Climate Data Analysis Tools developed by PCMDI. The visualization was produced with the integrated ViSUS tools developed by VACET.
