Abstract: Earth is a living system with a planetary scale metabolism that cycles carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and many other elements necessary for life. Understanding how disturbances in the natural cycle propagate through the Earth system and feedback on climate is a major research challenge. In this talk, NCAR scientist Matthew Long discusses how our Earth is responding to current changes, the global-scale airborne campaigns that collect data used to monitor these changes, and state-of-the-art Earth system modeling.
