Interaction among the Components of Climate System

Although the components of the climate system are very different in their composition, physical and chemical properties, and structure and behaviour, they are all linked by fluxes of mass, heat and momentum. They continuously interact among themselves. In the animation that follows, you can observe some such interactions.
