Item description for From Observations to Simulations: A Conceptual Introduction to Weather And Climate Modeling by Antonello Pasini...

From Observations to Simulations leads us on a fascinating journey through the methods used for the scientific analysis of complex systems such as the atmosphere and the Earth system: from meteorology and climatology, as observational sciences, to the development of models and the use of computers as virtual laboratories. In plain, accessible language, avoiding technicalities, but highlighting the conceptually meaningful aspects, the book describes this "Copernican revolution" in meteorology and climatology, a change in methodological paradigm that rigorously tests the definition of some classical concepts, such as "causality" and "prediction." This is the first book that guides the general public (and sets the specialists thinking) through research on complex systems which is contributing to a change in our outlook on nature.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Observations to Simulations: A Conceptual Introduction to Weather And Climate Modeling?

Good Discussion of Why We Use Model Simulations for Weather and Climate  Aug 9, 2007
This book explains why we cannot rely on observations and experiments to understand and predict weather and climate. It discusses how models and ensembles are necessary in atmospheric science. The book is written for non-scientists and is well done. As an atmospheric science student, I found this analysis very useful in an environment where model use is presumed rather than justified. It is translated from Italian so there are some translation problems. It is also wordy and repetitious in some sections. Overall, it is a useful summary of numerical weather and climate modeling.
