GFCS seeks to enable researchers, producers. Climate classification, the formalization of systems that recognize, clarify, and simplify climatic similarities and differences between geographic areas in order to enhance the scientific understanding of climates.

Such classification schemes rely on efforts that sort and group vast amounts of environmental data to uncover patterns between interacting climatic processes.

This book is a survey of climate change policy. But developing, advocating, and implementing viable policies is impossible without some understanding of the science that underlies the climate change debate.

This chapter provides just such an understanding. Whether or. To ensure a stable, long-term record of climate and climate-related changes, funding for data-generating activities should always include resources for long-term data management (NRC, d).

Köppen’s achievements, practical and theoretical, profoundly influenced the development of atmospheric science.

Climate is the long-term average of weather, typically averaged over a period of 30 years. Some of the meteorological variables that are commonly measured are temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, and a broader sense, climate is the state of the components of the climate system, which includes the ocean and ice on Earth.
