Abstract

As context for this symposium, this will be a brief history of the development of the ACS Climate Science Toolkit and its present contents. We will consider the rationale for including the concepts there now and also what is missing that might provide a more complete picture of the major factors that affect the climate and the changes it is undergoing. One that has been identified is the interaction of land and air, especially the large seasonal fluxes of carbon dioxide, their causes, and the reasons for the changes that may be occurring. These are the subjects of this symposium that will inform additions to the Toolkit.
