The mathematics of global warming

“The climate fact no one will admit: 2 °C warming is inevitable”

Here are some recent mathematicians who work on related questions:

The work of mathematician Guillaume Jouvet (Free University Berlin) and glaciologist Martin Funk of ETH in Zürich is somewhat spooky but awesome. They use computer model of glaciers and data gathered from the slow under-ice motion of the bodies of alpinists who died in a glacier over a number of years. https://plus.maths.org/content/maths-solves-frozen-mystery

And Noemi Petra’s new work is on inferring base slip conditions for Antarctic glacial flows
