Simulation of Global Warming with the MRI Coupled Model

A Coupled Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Model has been developed for simulation of climate change. The Global Warming is simulated by the model with a gradual increase of carbon dioxide by1% per year conpound, starting from the 1985 condition. In this presentation we will show you the results of our 70-year simulation.
