Our ability to numerically model natural systems has progressed enormously over the last 10e20 years. During the last decade computational power has increased to the stage where we can now have a super-computer on our desk, and the detail and fine scale processes that can be included in models are fantastic. The computational tools available for analysis and display have opened doors beyond the dreams of our forebears. However, as modelling power has increased there has been a concurrent… CONTINUE READING
