Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies: There is an increasing need for broad approaches that combine expertise in diverse areas. This is illustrated by the development of coupled models that represent the current state of our knowledge of the atmosphere, the oceans, the land surface, and sea ice and how they interact. Studies of interactions among gas-phase chemistry, aerosols, clouds, and radiation also span disciplinary boundaries. Research into dynamical and turbulent systems, the role of clouds in climate, causes and impacts of Space Weather, and the role that changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere play in climate, are all represented in our science program. The following links take you to the websites of the programs involved in these studies.
