The DFG Research Network will bring together researchers from history and philosophy of atmospheric science with researchers from atmospheric science. Since forecasting algorithms has increasingly gained ground in meteorology in the 1950s and since the Charney Report posed the question of climate sensitivity in 1979, modelling has paved the way of meteorology to climate change science and policy. The goal of the network is to discuss the ongoing developments in atmospheric science (weather and climate science) due to the use of computer based models. The next meeting on "Visualizing Climate" will take place at the University of Potsdam in spring 2011.
