Within the Earth s guts

Within the Earth s guts some recent research into the link between the climate and tectonic activity within the Earth's bowels could have important implications for predicting climatic phenomena. This could be especially important for a country like India, which depends overwhelmingly on the monsoons.

Climate modelling and prediction is traditionally based on understanding ocean-atmosphere interactions supposedly controlled by natural variability of sea surface temperature, insolation (exposure to the Sun's rays) and ocean currents. However, limitations in the available knowledge came to the fore when even the most successful forecast model
