FATES: FAst Climate Changes, New Tools to Understand and Simulate the Evolution of the Earth System
Computer climate models are the only tools available to gauge the speed of future change. It is therefore very important to assess whether these models are indeed capable of correctly predicting the speed of these changes. The purpose of FATES is to study with precision the natural global warming that took place at the end of the most recent glacial period, some 20,000 to 10,000 years ago. This data will serve as a benchmark for testing out the climate models that we are using today.
