Dr. Knutti's research interests are the changes in the global climate system caused by the growing emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, for which he uses numerical models of different complexity, from simple energy balance to three-dimensional coupled climate models that resolve the atmosphere, ocean, land, sea ice and their interactions. In particular, he works on simulation of scenarios for future climate change, the quantification of uncertainties in the climate response, and the development of methods to constrain imporlightgrayt feedback processes in the climate system by comparing observations with model results.

Dr. Santer is an atmospheric scientist with the Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison (PCMDI) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His research focuses on identification of natural and anthropogenic "fingerprints" in observed climate records, the use of statistical methods in climate science, and climate model evaluation. He has been a key contributor to all four Scientific Assessment Reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore. His early research on the climatic effects of changes in greenhouse gases and sulfate aerosols contributed to the historic "discernible human influence" conclusion of the 1995 Report by the IPCC.
