Dr. Klaus Hasselmann is a German oceanographer and climate modeller. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of Hamburg and former Director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology.
Both the theory of stochastic climate forcing and the development of the fingerprint method from Dr. Hasselmann are key contributions to climate science. He has won a number of awards over his career, including the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics jointly with Syukuro Manabe and Giorgio Parisi for groundbreaking contributions to the “physical modeling of earth’s climate, quantifying variability and reliably predicting global warming” and “understanding of complex systems”.
On climate change Dr. Hasselmann has said that “the main obstacle is that the politicians and the public are not aware of the fact that problem is quite solvable. We have the technologies and there is a question of investing in these technologies. I think it is quite possible to respond to and solve the climate problem without a major impact in our way of life.”
In this Master Forum, Dr. Klaus Hasselmann will deliver his Nobel Prize lecture.
Welcome to join us.
