Investigates the nature of the Earth’s climate by examining the physical processes that maintain our climate system. Focuses primarily on the flow of energy and moisture in the global climate and its geographic variation on scales of hundreds to thousands of kilometers. Human-induced modifications to the climate system, such as urbanization, anthropogenic global warming, desertification, and tropical deforestation, are also discussed.
