About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 75.
The global climate system is characterized by exchanges of matter and energy between its various components on a wide range of time and space scales. The essence of understanding, and eventually predicting, climate and global change will depend on our capability to measure and model these exchanges. Energy, water and biogeochemical cycles of all kinds are the focus of this interdisciplinary volume. Some papers deal with theoretical, others with observational and others with the modelling aspects of fluxes of matter and energy between parts of the global climate system. This volume arose out of the Hann Symposium and has been augmented by contributions from two other symposia. The result is a comprehensive set of papers dealing with the interacting components of the climate system.
