Mendez & Farazmand (2021): Investigating climate tipping points under various emission reduction and carbon capture scenarios with a stochastic climate model

Alexander Mendez and Mohammad Farazmand IN: Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, 2021; 477 (2256) DOI: 10.1098/rspa.2021.0697

A simplified mathematical model of carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations and temperature found a ‘lag time’ between human intervention and an actual decrease in CO2 levels. This lag time has ramifications for intervention strategies meant to avoid climate tipping points and potentially catastrophic temperature increases.
