Modellers duel with hot equations

Researchers have developed a 'simple' climate model that includes the major physical processes - such as ocean currents and eddies - that affect the transport of heat to the ocean depths from the top 100 metres. They believe their model of ocean heat uptake, if linked to the simple climate model used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), would improve the accuracy of global warming and sea level predictions.
