Hindcasting helps scientists improve forecasts for life on Earth


, : Hindcasting helps scientists improve forecasts for life on Earth.

Some 7 UC Berkeley scientists have launched a unique program, the Berkeley Initiative in Global Change Biology, to use hindcasting -- "predicting" what happened during past episodes of climate change -- to improve the reliability and accuracy of computer models that forecast how plants and animals will adapt to a changing planet. Researchers will study museum specimens and conduct field work to understand ecosystem responses to human and natural alterations to the environment.
