Climate and Environment

A section of Climate (ISSN 2225-1154).

Section Information


The aim of the Climate and Environment Section is to advance the state of knowledge and predictability of the multiscale interactions and feedback between the climate system, the natural environment, and human systems. Taking a holistic Earth systems science approach, the section publishes original articles, letters, reviews, and communications focused on observational, analytical, computational, and modeling methods addressing physical, chemical, and biological interactions among all components of the Earth system. Integrated Earth system studies are naturally transdisciplinary and employ a wide range of analytical and modeling methods, including traditional statistical techniques, large-scale data mining, process-based modeling, data assimilation, machine learning, and other artificial intelligence methods, hybrid process-based modeling or machine learning-based modeling, and other model-data integration approaches.
