Nobel Prize in Physics 2021: Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann, Giorgio Parisi grabs the honour

Manabe and Hasselmann share one half of the prize for their research on climate models

US-Japanese scientist Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann of Germany, and Giorgio Parisi of Italy on Tuesday bagged the Nobel Physics Prize for climate models and the understanding of physical systems.

 

Manabe and Hasselmann share one half of the prize for their research on climate models, while Parisi won the other half for his work on the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems.

 

"Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann laid the foundation of our knowledge of the Earth's climate and how humanity influences it," the Nobel Committee said.

 

For the past two years, the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences has honoured findings in the field of astronomy, leading watchers to speculate it was due for a change of field.
