WHAT DOES IGBP MEAN IN ENGLISH?

International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme

The International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme is a research programme that studies the phenomenon of global change. The International Council of Scientific Unions, a coordinating body of national science organizations, launched IGBP in 1986. It looks at the total Earth system, the changes that are occurring, and the manner in which changes are influenced by human actions. IGBP aims to describe and understand how the physical, chemical and biological processes regulate the Earth system. It also seeks to increase knowledge of how humans are influencing the global processes, such as the carbon cycle, nitrogen cycle, sulfur cycle, water cycle and phosphorus cycle. "It delivers scientific knowledge to help human societies develop in harmony with Earth's environment." IGBP research is organised around six projects representing the Earth system - land, atmosphere, ocean and where they meet and two further projects looking at the Earth system as a whole: Past Global Changes which looks at palaeoclimate, and the Analysis, Integration and Modelling of the Earth System, which helps set the agenda for Earth system models.
