  • Cryosphere and Climate

    The term “cryosphere” collectively describes elements of the Earth system containing water in its frozen state. It includes snow cover and solid precipitation, sea ice, lake and river ice, glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, permafrost and seasonally frozen ground. Ice shelves and icebergs are included in these categories. Read More
  • Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate

    The atmosphere plays a key role in the energy balance of the Earth. Read More
  • Water, Energy and Climate

    Solar energy is the fundamental driver of the Earth’s climate system, while infrared emission is the system coolant. Net heating in equatorial regions and net cooling in polar regions drive both atmospheric and oceanic circulations. Read More
  • Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics

    The chemistry and dynamics of the stratosphere and troposphere, and their wide ranging interactions, are increasingly being included in the global models used to project changes in climate. Read More
