Dear Colleagues,


We are happy to announce Session NH18: Climate Change, Impacts and Hazards:
System of Systems at the Fall 2010 AGU meeting December 13-17.

NH18: Climate Change, Impacts and Hazards: System of Systems

The climate is a system, part of the global Earth systems. Other systems
include regional and local levels, with relevant processes occurring at
these levels, impacted by hazards, whether climate-related or not, and
whether anthropogenic or natural.  As such, hazards, which occur at local
levels, are affected by global climate change and in turn produce feedbacks
with impacts at all levels, including global levels. As climate change is
proceeding, we have to understand the effects of hazards, as they are more
immediate and strongly influence human societies at all levels. Regional
climate is particularly strongly affected by hazards and associated physical
processes. These impacts at regional levels can be substantially stronger
than longer, decadal global climate change. As such, the science has to be
studied as a system of systems and if scientists are to issue science
results which have policy implications, we have to understand the
mutli-dimensional relationships of between the Earth, the climate system at
all levels, hazards and their impacts on societies.  


This session will explore the science issues associated with hazards,
climate change and their impacts and feedbacks into the Earth systems and
societies, emphasizing the connections, feedbacks and addressing the issues
from the point of view of system of systems.
