To understand Earth's climate, climate modelers employ a hierarchy of climate models spanning a wide spectrum of complexity and comprehensiveness. An essay, led by AOS Postdoctoral Research Associate Nadir Jeevanjee and inspired by the World Climate Research Programme's recent ‘Model Hierarchies Workshop’ held on Main Campus, attempts to survey and synthesize some of the current thinking on climate model hierarchies, especially as presented at the workshop. Former AOS Graduate Student Spencer Hill (UCLA) is among the essay's coauthors.
