THESIS: Changes in the water cycle over land and ocean

Model simulations are the most practical way to predict climate. All simulations are based on different conditions that have already happened or are assumptions of future. ​Shangyu will be examining the CO2-water vapour feedback with the aim to improve how this is currently represented in climate models.
