Climate and Paleoclimate
Study of Earth's climate extends from investigation of past climate states, to investigation of the key underlying physical and chemical controls on modern climate balances, to prediction of the climate outcomes of ongoing anthropogenic and natural forcings.
Equally important is documentation of the changes in the terrestrial surface and oceanic environments that have in the past and will in the future accompany climate change.
