The Scientific Fundamentals of Climate Change - Interactive Version

The climate system is a complex, interactive system consisting of the atmosphere, land surface, snow and ice, oceans and other bodies of water, and living elements. The climate system evolves in time under the influence of its own internal dynamics and due to changes in external factors. But, do you know what the meteorological consequences of climate variability and change are? What is the human contribution to climate variability? Find out about these and other issues through the UN CC:Learn learning interface on the scientific fundamentals of climate change. If you are a newcomer to the area of climate change, start with the UN CC:Learn introductory e-course on climate change (blue box above). If you already know the basics about climate change, explore more about the science of climate change by clicking on the advanced learning topics below. You will be guided to the best available resources for each area.
