The work of the Royal Society’s Science Policy Centre is organised around the following four themes.
The Daisyworld model developed by Dr James Lovelock FRS and Professor Andrew Watson FRS. This conceptual model illustrates the tight coupling between climate and the biosphere through the connection between surface reflectivity and temperature—white daisies reflect more and absorb less solar radiation than do dark daisies thereby keeping the Earth cooler.
To learn more about these themes please read the Science Policy Centre’s prospectus: ‘Science Policy Centre: 2010 and beyond’ (PDF).
Our policy projects are led by Fellows and other experts.
