Modeling of Natural Systems

Modeling of Natural Systems  

The Earth's natural system encompasses the totality of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere and their interactions. Thus it spans very many variables, time scales, and spatial ...
Ocean Disposal

Ocean Disposal  

Pollutants are introduced or disposed of into the ocean from point sources and nonpoint sources. Point sources are deliberate discharges from outfalls and ocean dumping. Oil drilling platforms, more ...
Ocean Dynamics

Ocean Dynamics  

Ocean waters flow over a continuum of spatial and temporal scales. Waves and small-scale processes with scales of meters and seconds coexist in an ocean basin with circulation features that ...
water Vapor

water Vapor  

The gaseous form of water, present in the atmosphere in varying amounts. It is an intermediate stage in the hydrological cycle. Water vapour in the atmosphere represents 0.01% of the total water ...
Younger Dryas

Younger Dryas  

A stadial or relatively cold period from about 12 900 to 11 600 years ago, which interrupted the warming of the Earth after the last ice age.
