How clouds influence climate change

af | 31. marts 2021 | Forskning, Klimakrisen

​This video talks about how clouds interact with climate – what happens when we warm the planet, and will clouds act as a positive or a negative feedback? It turns out that water in the Earth’s atmosphere has a complex relationship with the Earth’s temperature, both in clouds and as water vapour. To visualise this interaction, I made a 3D visualisation in Blender, reading in climate model output via Python.
