TOP > Climate Research Department > First Laboratory


Our laboratory promotes and facilitates basic theoretical research on climate change and clarifying the cause of climate change. We are developing and improving the tool called "climate model", which implements physical laws governing the atmosphere and ocean of the earth, in order to use in climate change research. The climate model reasonable well reproduces the observed climate of the earth. Therefore, we can investigate the cause of global scale variability of temperature and precipitation over centuries from the past to the present.
