Welcome to the Seasonal Attribution Project…
WWF homepage climateprediction.net homepage
Recent extreme weather events have prompted the debate about effects of human activity on the world’s climate. Now you can help us to determine the extent to which extreme weather events like the United Kingdom floods of Autumn 2000 are attributable to human-induced climate change. We invite you to download and run high-resolution model simulations of the world’s climate on your own computer. By comparing the results of these simulations, half of which will include the effects of human-induced climate change, and half of which will not, we will investigate the possible impact of human activity on extreme weather risk. Thank you for your help, and please join the project!
This project has been developed under the climateprediction.net project with support from WWF International. If you are already running one of climateprediction.net’s experiments, or the new BBC Climate Change Experiment, then PLEASE allow your current experiment to finish before starting your Seasonal Attribution experiment. This project has fairly high computing requirements, including 1GB RAM: if your computer does not meet these, we suggest you try one of the main climateprediction.net experiments.
Please note: System Requirements
Please note that because this project uses a high-resolution climate model, it has fairly heavy CPU and Memory requirements:
* CPU: Pentium 4, 2.4GHz (or equivalent, or higher!) is the minimum CPU suggested to complete a single simulation in under 4 weeks if run continuously. Slower processors will take longer. * RAM: 1GB of RAM is suggested, as the simulation takes up typically between 150-450MB of memory. * Disk space: 500MB of hard disk space should suffice. * Supported platforms: Windows XP/2000/NT and Linux.
