50 years of research and innovation

For more than 50 years, research and innovation has helped to understand, tackle and mitigate the effects of climate change, and embed evidence in decision making and climate policy.

From early research proving global temperature rises and using ice cores that contain 800,000 years of continuous Earth climate records, to using supercomputers for climate modelling. We take a look at some of the most important discoveries in climate change research so far.
