The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in physics to scientists Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann and Giorgio Parisi.
Syukuro “Suki” Manabe, 90, and Klaus Hasselmann, 89, received half of the award for their work on “physical modeling of earth’s climate, quantifying variability and reliably predicting global warming.”
Giorgio Parisi, 73, was recognized by the Swedish Academy of Sciences for the second half of the award for “the discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales.”
The winners were announced during a news conference Tuesday in Stockholm, Sweden.
The “three Laureates share this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics for their studies of chaotic and apparently random phenomena. Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann laid the foundation of our knowledge of the Earth’s climate and how humanity influences it. Giorgio Parisi is rewarded for his revolutionary contributions to the theory of disordered materials and random processes.” according to the press announcment.
