NC-NCP: Natural Complexity Project
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-PDC-00511

Abstract: COMPLEXITY will apply new mathematical methods to data sets drawn from across the GSAC programme to reveal previously hidden underlying patterns and laws, and to develop new mathematical models to explain them. This is known as the field of complexity science. Combined with results from other BAS scientific programmes this work will help assess the likelihood of extreme environmental changes.

Purpose: Objectives include:
* Identify, measure and explain aspects of complexity in four main components of the Earth system: the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, and magnetosphere
* Use ideas and methods from complexity science to offer new insights into environmental problems under investigation in selected BAS science programmes
