Environmental Structure and Function: Climate System is a component of Encyclopedia of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

This 2-volume set contains several chapters, each of size 5000-30000 words, with perspectives, applications and extensive illustrations. It carries state-of-the-art knowledge in the fields of Environmental Structure and Function: Climate Systems and is aimed, by virtue of the several applications, at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Georgii V. Gruza was born in 19 August 1931 in Tashkent, USSR (now Uzbekistan). In 1949 he entered and in 1954 he graduated from the Tashkent State University, Physics & Mathematics Faculty. Post graduate studies he passed from 1954 to 1957. Next Education steps: 1961 - PhD, TSU & Uzbek Academy of Science, 1968 - Doctor of Science, Geophysics, 1976 - Full Professor of Meteorology. His working positions were: 1957-1959 - Scientist-member of the Soviet Antarctic Expedition (Mirny), 1959-1970 - Head of Numerical Weather Forecast Dept., Central Asian Research Hydrometeorological Institute (Tashkent) 1970-1975 - Head of Data Processing and Methods Developing Dept., at the Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information - World Data Center (RIHI-WDC), Obninsk, Kaluga Region), 1975-1982 - Deputy Director (Science Branch) of RIHI-WDC, 1983 up to present - Head of Climate Monitoring and Probabilistic Forecasting Dept. in the Institute of Global Climate and Ecology, Moscow. Areas of his research activities: investigations of the global atmospheric circulation, development of statistical methods for medium and long-range weather forecasting, analysis, detection and forecast of climate change and computer processing of large hydrometeorological data sets. He was the author and co-authors of numerous scientific papers and reports, which he presented at international and national scientific meetings during his scientific career. During several periods he served as an expert, rapporteur or a member of various international boards and meetings, for example, he was a member of WMO Working Group on Climate Change Detection and chair of RA-V1 (Europe) Working Group on Climate-Related Matters, also he was one of lead authors of the Second and the Third IPCC Assessment Reports. Among his awards: - Diploma of senior researcher in geophysics (1966), Multanovskiy Award (highest for forecast investigation in the Hydrometeorological Service of Russia) (1976), title of Honoured Meteorologist of Russian Federation (1999).
