What is it about?

It is about the modelling of the effects of seasonal Earth processes in different places and times on the global climate conditions. The presented numerical algorithm makes it possible to investigate the plausible regularities of the seasonal effects of two successively progressive and regressive process phases of periodic climate changes in time.

Why is it important?

It is important because the accumulation of the effects of seasonal Earth processes in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and cryosphere essentially influence the global climate conditions. The article summarizes the cumulative effects of the reported seasonal growth and decline of the atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, of the observed seasonal melting and freezing of the Antarctica and Greenland ice sheets and of the Arctic sea ice as well as the reported seasonal sea level rise.


The knowledge of the properties of seasonal processes opens the perspectives of more comprehensive control of the necessary reductions of worsening phases and urging of recovery phases of seasonal atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, land and sea ice melting and sea level rise. These data are important for long-term future climate scenarios for global temperature rise control and knowledgeable planning of sustainable climate change policies following the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSP).
