Les simulations numériques de l'évolution du climat : de nouveaux problèmes philosophiques ?

Abstract : In order to study the evolution of global climate, computer simulation is required. The use of computer simulation has been criticized since the results are uncertain. In this paper, I present the various components of the simulations used in climate studies (data, models, computer programs) and I analyze those components from an epistemological point of view. I conclude in showing that these simulations obey the scientific requirements usually governing contemporary science.
