World’s Governments Must Learn About Emissions During COVID-19 Shutdown
AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE – by Albert Kallio
Global Circulation Models (GCMs) are computer models of the world’s atmosphere based on observations and assumptions if there are no direct information available.
World emissions shutdowns are a novel opportunity to learn about how climate system responds under different circumstances that cannot be normally experimentally checked. It is vitally important for the world’s governments NOT to shut down meteorological measurements. Indeed, efforts must increase to use opportunity to test and search regional responses of the highly unusual situation.
World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and national meteorological organisations must quickly come up with new research proposals to gain every possible bit of information as this helps to understand how world’s climate will respond as the world moves towards ZERO emissions. It is a tremendous tragedy if this unique opportunity to find more about how our atmosphere operates is lost.
Sponsors, please look at serious proposals to make research offers right now! Let’s make something positive happen out of this coronavirus calamity.
