Description
 
Climate is a fundamental factor in ecosystem health; while most species can survive a sudden change in the weather, such as a heat wave, flood, or cold snap, they often cannot survive a long-term change in climate. Global climate is the average of all regional trends, and researchers have concluded that Earth’s climate, as a whole, is warming. Researchers funded by the Nat. Science Found. (NSF) have discovered signs of a changing climate in nearly every corner of the globe, from the icy expanses of the polar regions of Earth to its equatorial ecosystems. Our planet’s climate affects — and is affected by — the sky, land, ice, sea, life, and the people found on Earth. To piece together the entire puzzle of climate change—what we know, what we still have to learn and what humankind can do to prepare for the future—we must study all of the physical, natural, and human systems that contribute to, and interact with, Earth’s climate system. With its emphasis on supporting pioneering research, NSF is well positioned to support the broad fed. agency response to climate change. The basic research NSF funds is essential to creating a vibrant and strong foundation for the important work of the mission agencies that are responsible for the U.S. government’s monitoring of, and response to, climate change and variability. This report presents NSF Research Highlights in the areas of sea, ice, land, life, and people. Illus.
