UK Met Office supports new climate science exhibition


The Met Office has acted as principal contributor to a new climate science exhibition at the Science Museum in London that opens this weekend.


The exhibition, titled atmosphere: exploring climate science, aims to deepen museum visitors’ understanding of climate science in an enjoyable, engaging and memorable way.


Met Office climate scientists have provided in-depth information on how climate change is observed and modelled; projected temperature rises, and the impact of these rises. They have also acted as expert advisers for the exhibition’s content.


Professor Julia Slingo, Met Office Chief Scientist, said: “Met Office scientists are playing leading roles in formulating expert evidence on past and future climate change to international bodies such as the IPCC and across all sectors of UK Government and business.


“We’re delighted to have contributed to this exciting new gallery bringing climate science to life. Visitors will be able to see how our climate is changing; understand what’s driving these changes, and how these affect our planet — now and in the future.”


The exhibition includes interactive exhibits and a variety of objects to explain how the climate system works, to show how scientists study the climate system, and to summarise the current state of knowledge about our climate.


atmosphere: exploring climate science opens to the public on Saturday, 4 December.
