Climate change modelling
Predicting future climates can be complex, as we can not simply extrapolate these from past climates. To ascertain future climates models need to incorporate all of the nonlinear processes (i.e. range and interconnectedness of climate drivers) under any future scenario. Global Climate Models (GCMs) are mathematical models that rely on the laws of physics. Climate models are generally robust, with uncertainties arising due to unknowable or ranging parameterisations. GCMs predict future climate scenarios and detail the management of natural resources, infrastructure and disaster mitigation under these future scenarios.
Construct a clearly stated research question
Draft the scene of your refined topic, adhering to a strict word limit of 500 words (this excludes the “references” subheading and the reference list). The written component may be written in the first or third person, and should include:
-A title (the refined research question or statement) (~10 to 20 words).
-Five keywords (single words or short phrases) to sit between the title and introduction that would act as search terms for your Draft of the Scene (~ 5 to 10 words). These should not duplicate words in your title.
-Introduction for a draft literature review following an inverted triangle model (~ 150 words).
-A subheading describing the one main body section that could be included in your review (~ 10 words). I.e. This will be likely be the first subheading out of the two to three that will be in your final review.
-One main body section. This needs to synthesise information from the published literature you have read to communicate a concept within your topic (up to 300 words) that will go onto be the first of the two to three main body sections in your final review. This section doesn’t need to be complete but you should aim to have around 300 words (1-2 paragraphs). You will build on this section later in 1c and 1d.
-Use in-text citations to correctly cite at least five primary and one secondary reliable peer-reviewed articles published between 2016 and present within your introduction and main body section combined. In-text citations should be formatted to the UR-SPC: A guide for authors.
