Project Description

A tipping point refers to a critical threshold in the Earth’s climate system beyond which a potentially irreversible and abrupt shift occurs. This shift can lead to significant and often detrimental changes in the climate, ecosystems, and other Earth systems. Tipping points are closely linked to climate change as they highlight the vulnerability of the Earth’s systems to even small increases in temperature, and they underscore the urgency of mitigating climate change to avoid crossing these thresholds.
