Explore the complexities of Earth’s climate system with visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations. While exploring this show, follow a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere.
