TOKYO -- Syukuro Manabe and two others won the Nobel Prize in physics for "groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of complex physical systems," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said on Tuesday.

Manabe's work helped the international community to turn its attention to global warming and led to the establishment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which provides policymakers with regular scientific assessments of climate change.
