Three scientists have won this year’s Nobel prize in physics for their respective discoveries in climate modeling and complex physical systems making the announcement a little while ago. The royal Swedish academy said their scientists discoveries demonstrate that our knowledge about the climate rests on a solid scientific foundation.
The royal Swedish academy of sciences has today decided toward the 2021 Nobel prize in physics for groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of complex physical systems. One half of the prize is awarded jointly to shukuro manabe and Klaus hasselman for the physical modeling of Earth’s climate quantifying variability and reliably predicting global warming. The other half goes to Giorgio Parisi for the Discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales.
Both are really fundamental to their understanding of how our world functions and how complex it is. Even though it looks simple from above from the universe. It looks like a ball but when you get closer you see the clouds moving. You see atmospheric streams going around and there you understand how complex and sensitive this system is. The climate being an incredibly complex systems.
