Understanding and Predicting the Earth System: Research in this area seeks to extend our understanding of the various components of the Earth system; atmosphere, oceans, land and biosphere, ice and the hydrological and biogeochemical cycles, to an extent that allows for predictions of weather on small to global scales, seasonal to decadal climate, extreme events and the influence of various forcing processes. Much of this research centers on developing numerical models of climate, weather processes, upper-atmosphere dynamics, and chemistry.
