Due to human-induced climate change, the planet is undergoing many changes. “We have had years of record Arctic sea ice minimum. We have lost a massive area of northern hemisphere snow cover, probably by more than 1 million square kilometers in the past 15 years,” elaborates David Carlson, Director of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). “We are working in a different climate and we do not fully understand the new patterns emerging.” It is in this spirit that the WCRP and the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) have emphasized the need to form an association where young applied scientists can work hand-in-hand with partners in the social sciences to achieve the advancements in understanding Earth system science desperately needed by society.
