Neural Network Modeling in Climate Change Studies
At present, climate change is a “hot topic”, not only in scientific analyses and papers by researchers, but also in wider discussions among economists and policy-makers.
In whatever area you are, the role of modeling appears crucial in order to understand the behavior of the climate system and to grasp its complexity. Furthermore, once validated on the past, a model represents the only chance to make projections about the future behavior of the climate system.
