APMCM 2022: ISAB's Porthos Fu Takes on Climate Change

The Asia and Pacific Mathematical Contest in Modeling (APMCM) is a prestigious competition that attracts some of the brightest young minds from around the world. This year, ISAB is proud to announce that one of our own, Porthos Fu, was among the participants.


Porthos and his team tackled the challenging task of analyzing data, modeling, scaling, and visualizing the impact of climate change on the earth's temperature. Their goal was to raise awareness of this critical issue and provide insights that can help guide action to address it.

In their essay, Porthos and his team analyzed data from 1960 to 2022 and established a relationship between temperature and carbon dioxide concentration. They also established a regression model that predicts that the annual average temperature at all observation points will exceed 20℃ around 2026. The team also discussed the impact of natural factors, such as volcanic eruptions, COVID-19, forest fire, El Nino and La Nina phenomena on the local or global climate.


The team's conclusion is that the concentration of carbon dioxide is the most critical factor affecting global temperature and the governments of all countries should work together to control carbon dioxide emissions. More specifically, the government should introduce the use of clean energy and actively guide the transformation of high emission and high pollution industries.

We are proud of Porthos for his outstanding performance in the competition and for his commitment to addressing one of the most pressing issues of our time. The essay is available on IPFS, a decentralized file-sharing network, for anyone to read and learn more about the team's findings and suggestions.



ISAB is proud to support our members in their academic and research endeavors, and we are thrilled to see Porthos's hard work and dedication to understanding the impact of climate change recognized on a global stage. We encourage all of our members to continue pursuing their passions and making meaningful contributions to their fields. We will continue to provide resources and support to help them achieve their goals.
