Earth: Your future, our mission. Learn about some of NASA's climate scientists: #EarthRightNow

Dr. Schmidt develops large-scale numerical simulations to study climate change. Climate models encapsulate the processes that underlie how our global climate works. They use computer code to turn global processes like the evaporation of seawater and the formation of clouds into physical equations. Schmidt uses these models to gain insights into how our climate responds to both natural changes (like variations in the Sun’s output or to large volcanic eruptions) and human-caused changes (like greenhouse-gas increases from burning fossil fuels, deforestation and air pollution). He evaluates the models using targets based on past climate data in order to build credibility for predictions about climate change in the future.
