Our climate system is a dynamic system consisting
of many components. These components keep evolving
and constantly interact with one another. As a result,
the climate system as a whole also keeps evolving.
Let us imagine an ocean which constantly receives
water from many rivers, and each of these rivers not
only experience a change in volume of their water,
but also cross the path of other rivers at several
places. Which part of the ocean has received water
from which river can be tough to identify. â€˜Chaosâ€™
is the best way to describe this situation!
Our climate system is somewhat similar. It consists
of many components and each of these components keep
evolving and also constantly interact with one another.
What results is a climate system that itself keeps
evolving as a whole.
In this section, we will learn about the climate
system and it components, and find out how exactly
they intermingle with one another.
The following concepts will be covered.
Let us proceed to understand the first concept.
